  WOW! This Disc Is Great!! September 7, 2012 By Richard F. Buckley (Jefferson Hills, PA) See All My Reviews "Serafim has consistently marketed fantastic CDs for a fraction of their value, and, in my opinion, this is one of their best. I am not an opera fan. But I love Wagner's orchestral music! The selections included here are some of his finest and most beloved works - Die Meistersinger, two selections from Tristan Und Isolde, the Overture from Tanhauser, the Funeral March from Gotterdammerung, The Ride of the Valkyries, the Prelude to Act III from Lohengrin and the Overture to Rienzi. Personally, I love them all - especially the Lohengrin Prelude. The music is produced by a super orchestra and conductor - the Oslo Philharmonic under the direction of Mariss Jansons. I have greatly admired the work of Jansons ever since he took over the reins of my home town orchestra, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. He certainly leaves nothing to be desired here! The offering is fabulous and the sound quality matches it. The price is certainly right. Snag this masterpiece while the getting is good! Highest recommendation." Report Abuse
