Wagner: Götterdämmerung - Nilsson, Windgassen, Greindl, Stewart, Mödl, Neidlinger, Dvoraková, Silja; Böhm. Bayreuth, 1966
Listen to a Sample:
- The stars truly align to create an unforgetable Götterdämmerung in this performance from Bayreuth.
- Birgit Nilsson, Wolfgang Windgassen, Josef Greindl and Thomas Stewart acquit Wagner's music like it were written for them.
- Martha Mödl fares much better as Waltraute than she did on the commercially released set.
- Ludmila Dvoraková's ample-voiced Gutrune almost gives Nilsson a run for her money.
- We are spoiled by Anja Silja's Third Norn!
- None to mention
