Wagner: Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg - Ridderbusch, Cox, Napier, Reynolds, Hirte, Sotin, Weikl; Hollreiser. Bayreuth, 1975


Listen to a Sample:



  • Karl Ridderbusch returns to the green hill in one of his greatest roles, Hans Sachs. In the role of Hans Sachs, Ridderbusch had no peers. He is in a very small class of baritones who was able to bring warmth and beauty to the part without ever tiring.
  • Marita Napier is a welcome addition. Her Eva has a little more heft to it than most, but still brims with youthful exuberance.
  • Jean Cox brings sweetness of tone to the role of Walther.


  • None to mention
