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
