Notes & Reviews:
Every Wagner fanatic knows the famous 1961 Philips label live recording of Der fliegende Hollander with Franz Crass as Hollander. Herewith, Andromeda presents the radio broadcast of the 1961 Bayreuth production which was recorded with the legendary George London, who gave here one of his best interpretations of the Hollander role. This recording shows once again that Mr. London was and remains unsurpassed as the demonic but for forgiveness-begging Hollander. Starring, in addition, Anja Silja, Fritz Uhl and Josef Greindl, this is the First Release in any format of this performance.Notes & Reviews:
