Notes & Reviews:

Set Svanholm, who, after a six-year career as baritone, switched to tenor in 1936 and who by 1937 was successfully appearing internationally as Siegmund, established a world-wide reputation as the Siegfried of the immediate post-war period. Birgit Nilsson sang her first Sieglinde in 1949 and appeared again in the role in February 1951, making her first guest appearance outside Sweden. The opportunity to record the first act of 'Die Walkure' with Birgit Nilsson and Set Svanholm came in 1953. In one respect the Hamburg production of 1953 is a unique document. There was never a stage performance of 'Die Walkure' with Birgit Nilsson, Set Svanholm, and Josef Greindl.
