Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Whilst the concert and opera business continues to repeat Wagner's operas in ever new facets, Christoph Spering is interested in different aspects during the Gluck and Wagner years 2013/14. - His serendipity led him to early Wagner and his adaptation of Iphigenia in Aulis, from which Wagner formed an almost new opera. Wagner conducted the world premiere of his version at the Royal Court Opera in Dresden on 24 Feb 1847 - now Christoph Spering has made a new recording of it with an outstanding ensemble.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Generally this is a fine recording and a chance to hear the Wagner version. The booklet includes the text. There is a somewhat interesting dialog between the conductor and Norbert Bolin. The recording also includes a Wagner's version of a concert overture to the opera.
