Listen to a Sample:
- As Hans Sachs, Karl Ridderbusch sings with warmth and tireless elegance.
- René Kollo's bright and brash tenor is perfectly suited to the role of Walther.
- As the Pogners, Hannelore Bode is exquisite as Eva, and Hans Sotin is elegance personified as Veit Pogner.
- Silvio Varviso favors a lighter touch, highlighting the humor of Wagner's score.
- None to mention
