Notes and Editorial Reviews

Also available on Blu-ray

Last year’s Tristan und Isolde was the first release in an exclusive partnership between DG and the Bayreuth Festival to record its new productions. Hailed as “sublime and provocative” by the New York Times, Parsifal is the latest recording in this partnership, recorded in 2016 “with an excellent cast, headed by the clarion tenor Klaus Florian Vogt in the title role, and the conductor Hartmut Haenchen drawing radiant sound and striking transparency from the festival orchestra” (New York Times).
