This release, dedicated to the 200th anniversary of the composer's birth, features widely popular overtures and entr'actes from Wagner's operas, which became part of the repertoire of such outstanding conductors as Evgeny Svetlanov, Gennady Rozhdestvensky, David Oistrakh, Evgeny Mravinsky, and many more.
