Wagner: Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg (In Swedish) - S. Björling, Svanholm, Söderström, Tyrén, Lundborg, Talvela; Sandberg. Stockholm, 1962


Listen to a Sample:



  • This recording of Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, despite being in Swedish, is a pretty impressive achievement courtesy of the Royal Swedish Opera.
  • Sigurd Björling brings gravitas and warmth to the role of Hans Sachs.
  • Elisabeth Söderström's youthful yet powerful soprano is perfectly cast in the role of Eva.
  • Set Svanholm gives a valiant and indefatigable performance of Walther von Stolzing without even considering the fact that he was almost 60.
  • A young Marttia Talvela sings the role of Hans Foltz.


  • None to mention.
