CRITIC REVIEW:

“The conductor [above] was Robert F. Denzler, a gifted Wagnerian in the Rodzinski mold, driving fairly hard….The outstanding cast member is Herbert Alsen, a black-voiced Hunding alongside Torsten Ralf’s bright, assertive Siegmund and Helene Werth’s fitfully fragile Sieglinde. The Brünnhilde of Gertrude Grob-Prandl sounds initially a little like Frida Leider…and Wotan is a sturdy Ludwig Hofmann.”
