"Nobody today, not even Goodall, can match Knappertsbusch's combination of line and emotional power" Gramophone

Another classic performance from the Vienna Philharmonic and Hans Knappertsbusch, this time performing Wagner, a speciality of the celebrated conductor.

During the first years of his conducting career Knappertsbusch took part as assistant in the Bayreuth Festival, directed by Siegfried Wagner, and had thus experienced Wagner tradition and culture from close by. After appointments in Bochum, Leipzig and Dessau Hans Knappertsbusch succeeded Bruno Walter in 1922 as Musical Director of the Munich State Opera, where Richard Wagner's works also played an important part. He therefore has a particular affinity for this music, shown in the powerful performances he extracts from orchestra and soloists.
