Wagner: Parsifal - Høiseth, Ericson, Rundgren, Saedén, Lundborg, Nordin; Segerstam. Stockholm, 1976
Listen to a Sample:
- Barbro Ericson is excellent as Kundry. She has the rich low notes of a contralto combined with the ringing high notes of a soprano.
- Kolbjørn Høiseth's Parsifal has a nice balance of lyrical and dramatic.
- Bengt Rundgren is a noble and sonorous Gurnemanz.
- The sound occasionally jumps a half a second in Act III. It happens a handful of times and can be a little jarring.
