Wagner: Siegfried - Windgassen, Nilsson, Adam, Wohlfahrt, Böhme, Köth; Suitner. Bayreuth, 1967


Listen to a Sample:



  • Again, Otmar Suitner steps in mid-cycle to relieve Karl Böhm, and delivers a performance that easily rivals his more famous colleague.
  • Wolfgang Windgassen is tireless in the title role, and relishes the opportunity to display his heroic top as well as the more lyric side of his voice.
  • Birgit Nilsson makes much of Brünnhilde's brief but daunting awakening in Act III.
  • Erwin Wohlfahrt deserves a shout-out for his wily, yet surprisingly vocally distinguished Mime.


  • There is some very mild and occasional static in Act III.
