Wagner: Götterdämmerung - Mödl, Hopf, Ernster, Bjoner, Giongo; Zaun. Duisburg, 1960


Listen to a Sample:



  • Despite ducking a few high note (although not all) Martha Mödl still delivers her signature commitment and artistry
  • Ingrid Bjoner spoils us with her Gutrune


  • Sound is muffled
  • There are a number of drop-outs in Act II and one before the Funeral March in Act III
  • Hans Hopf has a tenuous relationship with many of the pitches (although his tone is good when he sings them correctly.)
