The ‘Great Singers Live’ series from BR Klassik with individual releases for Mirella Freni, Herman Prey, Elisabeth Grümmer, Nicolai Ghiaurov, Lucia Popp and Margaret Price has been nothing short of remarkable.

I can report that the sound quality of these live Wagner recordings is consistent and to a high standard. Each conductor seems well prepared and the Munich Radio Orchestra well rehearsed as the standard of performance of each song is consistently high.

With each singer having something different to offer I enjoyed every single track.

The BR Klassik ‘Great Singers Live’ series continues to plunder successfully the back catalogue of Bavarian Radio. This latest release offers some stunning singing and remains one of the most enthralling discs I have heard for some time. © MusicWeb International Read complete review
