Wagner: Das Rheingold - Frantz, Pölzer, Höngen, Wernigk; Moralt. Wien, 1948


Listen to a Sample:



  • Ferdinand Frantz, as Wotan, brings an astonishing range of colors and dynamics, and seems unfazed by the vocal demands of this role.
  • Elisabeth Höngen's rich voice goes a long way in taking some of the edge off this character.


  • Julius Pölzer's Loge has a lot of character but is definitely lacking in beauty of tone.
