Notes & Reviews:

The sixth installment of PentaTone's successful Wagner Edition features the epic Tannhäuser. With world-class voices like Robert Dean Smith, Nina Stemme, and Albert Dohmen, this high-quality SACD live recording with the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin and Marek Janowski is sure to be a standout.

Gramophone Magazine, April 2013
Janowski's casting aims at getting an audible distinction between each voice...Both women have the measure of their words...while Robert Dean Smith - apparently a late substitute - continues to develop with a passionate assault on the fiendish title-role. Swift tempi and light orchestral/choral textures...complete a potentially exciting live performance...but the lack of understood drama behind Janowski's conducting gets in the way.

BBC Music Magazine, May 2013
Janowski keeps the score, which has some longueurs, moving and builds up impressive climaxes in each act...Prudenskaya, though her enunciation is vague, is adequately sexy...Stemme sound[s] too heroic for the part...but she makes an impression. All told I would say that this is the best recording since that made in Bayreuth in 1962.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
For the most part, this is an excellent recording. Janowski elicits superb work from his orchestra - especially some sublime brass playing - and chorus. Among the cast the star performance comes from Nina Stemme, the Elisabeth. The great Swedish soprano - without doubt today's reigning Wagnerian soprano - communicates the youthful exuberance of 'Dich, teure Halle'. Stemme is one of the very few singers today who can stand comparison with the great Wagnerian singers of the past. The recording comes with a complete German- English libretto, an interesting essay on Wagner, and biographical material on the performers.
