Nancy Crowder-Chaplin
Sound Commentary, November 2013

This production provides an excellent introduction to Richard Wagner…The production delivers a side-by-side pairing of the actual music with commentary preceding each selection. After the narrated biography there come samples of the music with a welcome narration before each piece, alerting the listener to various musical elements. An insert in the compact, two-disk case lists each segment and the orchestra performing the piece. The author narrates with great distinction. An excellent over-view of an important artist. © 2013 Sound Commentary Read complete review
