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.

Celebrating the 200th Anniversary of Wagner in 2013, David Zinman conducts the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich performing Scenes and Orchestral Pieces from “The Flying Dutchman” and “The Ring of the Nibelung”.

David Zinman is one of the world’s finest, most respected conductors, whose passion for music, dedication to furthering careers of young musicians and as an orchestral builder makes ‘music a better world’.

This CD features famous international Wagner baritone Egils Silins who can be heard as “Dutchman” and as “Wotan”.

Zinman has extended his contract with the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich until 2014, where, since 1995 as conductor and music director, he has raised the standard of the orchestra to an international level.

Zinman’s previous recordings on Sony have been received with superb critical acclaim.

In January 2006, David Zinman, received the prestigious Theodore Thomas Award, presented by the Conductors Guild in New York’s Roosevelt Hotel. The award is presented biannually to a conductor, in recognition of outstanding achievement and extraordinary service to one’s colleagues in advancing the art and science of conducting, reflecting honour on the profession.

“the poetic grandeur David Zinman brings to his acclaimed Mahler is equally evident here, with tempos slow enough to please Klemperer.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2013 ****

“all Zinman's success in the German repertoire from Beethoven to Strauss breeds period-conscious, exciting Wagner from him and his players, never over-bloated to a later-in-the-century sound.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2013

“[Silins] has a powerful voice that has a colour and tone that are absolutely right for Wagner...[he] sings Wotan's Farewell from Die Walkure with great presence and steely resolve where it's called for, but he is not afraid to produce real tenderness in places.” International Record Review, September 2013

“It's superbly done. Zinman's speeds are on the relaxed side, but there's wonderful transparency in the playing, far removed from the thick textures favoured by some interpreters. A thrilling account of Siegfried's Rhine Journey is the high point.” The Guardian, 4th July 2013 ****

Gillian Weir (organ)

This new DVD (with a free bonus CD containing specially recorded performances of some of the works) is a release by Priory of the BBC programmes that were recorded on six famous European Organs by Dame Gillian Weir in the late 1980s: [St Bavo, Haarlem; The Abbey Church, Ottobeuren; St Knud’s, Odense; Ulster Hall, Belfast; Hedvig Eleonora Kyrka, Stockholm; St Ouen, Rouen]. Running for over 150 minutes this unique visual collection of performances by one of the world’s most famous organists is not to be missed.

This DVD issue by Priory, the first since the original broadcast of the series, offers for many the first opportunity to hear the soundtrack in stereo. The programmes contain a glittering array of pictures and sound from these world famous organs: additionally, Dame Gillian talks about the pieces and the instruments. When first broadcast these programmes were watched by up to 2 million people.

“The series is filmed with imaginative camera angles that show off the beauty of the instruments and the buildings that house them. Indeed, it more than justifies Mozart's much-abused description of the organ as 'the king of instruments', offering a firm reminder that Gillian Weir is the queen of organists.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2011 ****
