****

“impressively atmospheric and gorgeously played”

Gramophone Magazine

Awards Issue 2011

“the fact that Wolfgang Wagner's production and design are characteristically traditional and unchallenging might actually be a plus-point for many...The long dialogue scene between Kundry and Parsifal is done with outstanding musical and dramatic conviction...Struckmann, Elming and the veteran Hans Sotin are all at their vocal best, while Sinopoli responds to the simplicity of the staging by letting the music speak with maximum expressiveness.”
