Album Summary

>Wagner, Richard : Die Walküre

>Wagner, Richard : Parsifal
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This release features an exhilarating selection of arrangements made by Stokowski of Wagner's well-known operas. The three Wagner transcriptions heard here have not been recorded since Leopold Stokowski himself conducted them on disc. The BBC Philharmonic was at the top of it's considerable form for these sumptuous performances.
