OP0348. DIE WALKÜRE – Act III, Live Performance, 26 May, 1937, London, w. Wilhelm Furtwängler Cond. Royal Opera House Ensemble; Kirsten Flagstad, Maria Müller & Rudolf Bockelmann; RUDOLF BOCKELMANN: Wagner Excerpts. (Italy) Myto 914.43. Long out-of-print, Final Copy! - 8014399000437
“This is simply breathtaking...Flagstad has never sounded better on any other of the historic performances. The voice is large, even, secure and warm not to mention the stamina. I don't know where the mikes were placed but the voice is so clear and her diction is stunning.
When today’s RING productions are turned out like iPhone apps it's a joy to listen to such work from a team that made a career out of this music. And then there is Wilhelm Fürtwängler! What beautiful phrasing. The sound from Covent Garden is a miracle. So highly recommended to everyone who loves opera and Wagner.”
