Notes & Reviews:

Early recordings of favorite Wagner orchestral selection still possess a special mystique. Five conducting giants, all born within 20 years of Wagner's death and all of whom made notable appearances at the Bayreuth Festival, are represented in this 4-CD collection. Especially notable is the comparison between Has Knappertsbusch's youthful exuberance for Polydor in 1927-28 and his final moving studio documents (on the Westminster label, in stereo) of 1962. Also featured: Furtwangler, de Sabata, Elmendorff and Jochum.
