Notes & Reviews:

At the 2007 Salzburg Easter Festival, members of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and their guests decided to attack Wagner from a different angle, so this disc features popular motifs from Wagner's operas in adaptations ranging from solemn to humorous. A compilation for every music lover with a sense of humor, Wagnerian or not.
