Wagner Album Reviews
Highlights from Neeme Järvi's extraordinary five-volume Wagner series with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. Classic FM Drive Featured Album, 19 August 2013.
A reissue of Wagner's complete Der Ring des Nibelungen from the 1998 Bayreuth Festival is a dramatic joy
The great conductor Leopold Stokowski leds some of the world's greatest orchestras through some of the greatest works ever written
Soprano Deborah Voigt's voice radiates through the arias of Wagner and Strauss, accompanied by Armstrong and the Bavarian Radio SO
Christian Thielemann extracts great force from his orchestra for an atmospheric performance of Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen
Incredible live recording from an amazing voice.
Violinist Anne Akiko Meyers joins Reiko Uchida on piano and harpist Emmanuel Ceysson on a collection of music by Beethoven, Debussy and the like
A disappointing combination of a fine voice and great source material.
Slovakian violinist Juraj Cizmarovic offers a seductive performance of less than stellar material.
Plenty to enjoy, but Neeme Järvi and the excellent Royal Scottish National Orchestra's performance is a little lightweight
An intense, epic live performance of Wagner's final opera, Parsifal, beautifully performed by a brilliant cast on top form
