Album Summary

Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"This set... belatedly becomes the most important; no other... makes the drama at once so immediate and so substantial... the most conspicuous recorded example of Hans Knappertsbusch having an 'on' night: his theatrical instincts... transforms his singers... the debt Wagnerians owe to Testament for unearthing this performance is incalculable; here is the essence of 'Gotterdammerung'." -Breckbill, BBC music magazine *****
