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.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
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.

Notes & Reviews:
