In My Wagner Album Christian Thielemann - a passionate Wagnerite and celebrated Wagner conductor - has brought together some of his favorite recordings, from the masters of the past and present: Furtwängler, Knappertsbusch, Karajan, Kleiber and Boulez; he also offers two of his own Wagner recordings. The CD booklet includes a new article by Christine Lemke-Matwey, with whom he recently co-wrote Mein Leben mit Wagner (My Life with Wagner).
