Notes & Reviews:

Of course, Wagner also wrote big ballads as well, so there's the Siegfried Idyll, the Tristan Prelude and Liebestod and the ethereal Prelude to Lohengrin.

The big names are there, above all Karajan, Bohm, Kubelik and Jochum. It's a mainly orchestral set, with just the Lohengrin Bridal Chorus and two extracts from The Ring (conducted by Karajan) to remind you that the guy was writing operas.
