Notes & Reviews:

LPO presents a previously unreleased concert recording which documents some of the great moments with former LPO principal conductor Klaus Tennstedt. Though Wagners most celebrated output can be found in his stage works; his operatic preludes, overtures and interludes have acquired a status as stand-alone concert works in their own right. Klaus Tennstedt was totally dedicated to the London Philharmonic Orchestra; a dedication reciprocated by the Orchestras musicians, staff and audiences, which pervades this live Proms performance from 1992.
