Notes & Reviews:
- A 1957 live performance from Stuttgart, conducted by Lovro von Matacic.
- The great Heldentenor Wolfgang Windgassen stars as Rienzi.
- Stuttgart came to be known as the 'Winter Bayreuth' for its staging of Wagner operas not slated for performance in Bayreuth.

His words were always clear and shapely, and his voice was evenly produced at all dynamic levels. Next to his counterparts in the 50s and 60s, he was a bel canto paragon! He sounds fairly fresh from start to finish.
Recording information: Stuttgart (11/03/1957).
