Wagner: Die Walküre - Ligendza, Stewart, Jones, King, Reynolds, Ridderbusch; Stein. Bayreuth, 1972
Listen to a Sample:
- The opera gets off to an explosive start courtesy of James King and Gwyneth Jones as Siegmund and Sieglinde.
- Catarina Lidgendza delivers the Hojotohos with astonishing ease, and then relaxes into the rest of the show, rendering a multi-faceted and nuanced reading, particularly in her scenes with Wotan.
- Thomas Stewart finds an appropriate blend of bluster and tenderness as Wotan.
- None to mention.
