WAGNER, R.: Opera excerpts / STRAUSS, R.: Till Eulenspiegel / BRAHMS, J.: Hungarian Dances Nos. 1, 10 (Furtwangler, Early Recordings, Vol. 4)(1930-36)

This fourth volume of Wilhelm Furtwängler’s early recordings features music by composers who were closely associated with the renowned conductor. These distinguished recordings include seamless and intensely wrought interpretations of evergreen favourites from Wagner’s Lohengrin, Tristan und Isolde and Götterdämmerung, the accomplishment of a musician who knew the music-dramas as a whole. The graphic and lovingly turned account of Richard Strauss’s Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks benefits from a remarkably vivid 1930 recording which belies its age.
