Notes & Reviews:

William Youngren wrote of the previous release in Fanfare magazine: "Reiner conducts with verve; Flagstad is splendid throughout; Melchior is superb - he and Flagstad make the Todesverkündigung scene alone worth the price of the disc."

Sunday Times, 26th May 2013
This 1936 live broadcast is still thrilling, with Reiner's eloquent conducting and a cast to dream of: Friedrich Schorr's dark, incisive Wotan, Lauritz Melchior's Siegmund and Lotte Lehmann's never-equalled Sieglinde.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: San Francisco (11/13/1936).
