Notes and Editorial Reviews

Since her Bayreuth-debut in 1988’s Ring (Barenboim/Kupfer), the American soprano Deborah Polaski undoubtedly numbers among the great Wagner interpreters. No one else, after 1914, has sung the Brünnhilde on the "green hill" as many times as Deborah Polaski! But besides Brünnhilde, it is clearly the rôle of Isolde that Polaski is identi?ed with nowadays.

This is a hybrid Super Audio CD playable on both regular and Super Audio CD players.
