A stunning Wagner collection including all the major overtures and preludes (including the very rare and very beautiful Die Feen [The Fairies]), this collection is noteworthy for other reasons. For a start, it brings together in a single collection the complete Decca Wagner recordings of Zubin Mehta and the complete Philips Wagner recordings of Edo de Waart. It also features two rarities - Wagner's early Symphony (with the San Francisco Symphony and Edo de Waart) and a tiny choral piece - Kinderkatechismus - an absolute Decca rarity and much sought-after by collectors.

Several of the recordings on this disc date from 1960, when Otto Klemperer celebrated his 75th birthday and Wieland Wagner, the composer’s grandson, saluted the conductor as “a unique artistic phenomenon”. Klemperer’s mastery of Wagner’s music was rooted in the early years of his career: by the age of 30 he had conducted performances of Lohengrin, Der fliegende Holländer, Tannhäuser, Der Ring des Nibelungen, Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, Parsifal and Tristan und Isolde.

This absolutely unique CD is a major contribution to the vast and wide-ranging discography of the late Leopold Stokowski (1882-1977) in that it shows him in the rare guise of an operatic conductor. This recording comes from a complete concert he gave in Philadelphia in 1962, of major operatic excerpts sung by two of the greatest singers of the day - the magnificent Wagnerian soprano Birgit Nilsson and the wonderful American tenor George London.

Recorded in stereo, with the original announcements as broadcast, this exceptional disc is sure to gain the widest possible interest.

The overtures and preludes by Richard Wagner not only are masterly composed openings to his dramatic works – as independent pieces they are also among the most popular compositions of the 19th century. For the first studio record of the new label Philharmonia Records general music director of the Opernhaus Zürich and the Philharmonia Zürich Fabio Luisi made his personal selection: it leads from the early overtures to Die Feen and Das Liebesverbot, in which Wagner still was oriented towards paragons such as Berlioz or Meyerbeer, through masterpieces as the preludes to Lohengrin and Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg and the famous «Walkürenritt» up to the mystically transfigured prelude from Parsifal. The record offers a cross section through Richard Wagner’s orchestral work and presents one of the most distinguished European opera orchestras – the Philharmonia Zürich.
