Matthew Richard Martinez, April 2014

WAGNER GALA (THE) (Kaufmann, Thielemann) (NTSC) 714908
WAGNER GALA (THE) (Kaufmann, Thielemann) (Blu-ray, HD) 715004

This is an exceptional release that captures a momentous occasion. While the performances are as outstanding as expected, there is more here: a potentially legendary tenor captured in his prime, and a burgeoning relationship between director and orchestra with limitless potential in this music. There is a disarming directness in these performances of Wagner that are faithful to the music but exceedingly affecting—recommended for all, not just Wagnerites. © 2014 Read complete review
