Edition Staatskapelle Dresden - Volume 23
Die Walküre: Act 1
Karl Elmendorff and Kurt Striegler were two of many composers responsible for splendid interpretations of Wagner's operas in Dresden in the first half of the twentieth century. At their disposal was the incomparable Staatskapelle, a high quality opera chorus and many outstanding singers, some of which appear on this recording. Featured are works from a selection of Wagner’s most famous operas.
“The whole of Act I and the last scent of Act III of Die Walküre, and snippets from the other operas recorded late in 1944 show what the great German Wagner tradition was like.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2009 *****
