Wagner: Das Rheingold - Stewart, Martin, Esser, Ridderbusch, Rundgren, Kollo; Stein. Bayreuth, 1970
Listen to a Sample:
- Thomas Stewart brings vocal confidence and gravitas to the part of Wotan without compromising the conversational quality of Wagner's prose.
- Janis Martin is an alluring and youthful Fricka.
- Karl Ridderbusch and Bengt Rundgren are an imposing pair of giants.
- A young René Kollo gets an early break in the role of Froh.
- None to mention.
