Notes & Reviews:

"From Knappertsbusch can be learnt the art of seamless Wagner conducting, the precise weighting of phrases, the ability to dove-tail one to another. At the opposite pole from current interpretation in this field, his grand, spacious, emotion-laden conducting reminded me of just what one misses in so many of his successors." -Gramophone
