Album Summary

>Wagner, Richard : Siegfried
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

'Siegfried' is the Second "day" - and third part - of Richard Wagner's 'Ring', the musical saga that its author spent more than a quarter of a century composing. It follows the rise of a young hero, Siegfried, the illegitimate son of the twins whose story we were told in 'Die Walkure'. On the one hand, there is learning about life, glorying in nature and in emotions, as opposed to those of calculation and greed on the other. This episode shows how Wagner was intent on changing society, on showing that a different kind of man can exist, that the mercenary petit bourgeois world can be replaced by greater humanity and freedom. A BLU-RAY disc of this performance is available as AHM 101358.
