Notes & Reviews:

Almost overnight, Kirsten Flagstad, was regarded as the supreme Wagnerian soprano of her generation. In 1936-37, she sang with Beecham, Fritz Reiner and Wilhelm Furtwangler at Covent Garden. These are BBC masters and re-produce the excitement of the occasion perfectly. To complete the compilation, two broadcasts of Wagner - the Wesendonck Lieder and the Liebestod from Tristan and Isolde have been included and research indicates that these 1953 performances conducted by Sargent from the Royal Festival Hall have never been available before.
