Wagner Duets

Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine (Fliegende HollSnder)
Performance with the blast of the winds and whiff of the sea.

Gramophone Magazine (Lohengrin)
The chivalrous James King will impress you as being one of the purest, most unidiosyncratic Lohengrins you'll have heard.

Gramophone Magazine (Die Meistersinger von Nnrnberg)
Fischer-Dieskau's interpretation is as musical, as richly varied, as intelligent as one could hope for [... ] The great and unexpected revelation is Domingo's Walther ... he provides the most lyrically ardent Walther in any of the sets to date, seconding his conductor in his long-breathed, eloquent phrasing.

Gramophone Magazine (TannhSuser)
Nilsson rises to great heights ... is predictably glorious in her pleading for mercy to be shown to her lover and Windgassen is equally good in his defiance and contrition.

Gramophone Magazine (Rheingold)
Fischer-Dieskau and Veasey establish their characters with amazing clarity and speed.

Gramophone Magazine (Die Walknre)
Vickers is a passionate Siegmund ... his performance is superb ... and as he is in splendid voice the heroic moments are most exciting.

Gramophone Magazine (Tristan und Isolde)
Kollo matches Price's beauty of line with his own, so that for lyrical refinement their love duet is in a class of its own.
