>Wagner, Richard : Das Rheingold
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The Walhall Eternity label is for the first time releasing in its entirety the legendary 1959 Covent Garden Ring cycle of Richard Wagner conducted by Franz Konwitschny, performances that feature the finest Wagnerian voices of the 1950's, including Wolfgang Windgassen, Hans Hotter, Astrid Varnay, Ramon Vinay, Amy Shuard (student of Eva Turner and Covent Garden regular), Gottlob Frick and more. Franz Konwitschny's gripping interpretations lie comfortably between those of Fürtwängler's commanding heights supremacy and Solti's fire and spontaneity. Re-mastered 24bit/96kHz.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London (09/18/1959).
