Notes & Reviews:

This live performance, recorded at the Bayreuth Festival in 1957, is one of the most powerful and dramatic interretations of Die Walkure ever performed. In a high level sound quality, it is today possible to listen to a legendary cast of singers, who have become a myth in the Wagnerian interpretation of the Twentieth Century. But, above all, it is the powerful and breathtaking reading by Hans Knappertsbusch to make of this performance a reference edition of great historical venue.
