Wagner: Siegfried (excerpts) - Svanholm, Frantz, Kuen, Langdon, Sutherland; Striedry. London, 1954
Listen to a Sample:
- Set Svanholm sings the role of Siegfried with effortless lyricism and brawn.
- Ferdinand Frantz is an elegant Wotan
- A young Joan Sutherland sings the role of the forest bird.
- The sound is what you might expect for the era.
- It is a shame that the recordings stops before Margaret Harshaw makes her first entrance as Brünnhilde.
