 a fine recording of the usual Wagner orchestral w September 12, 2013 By james oppenheimer (hyde park, NY) See All My Reviews "We have here the preludes that one often likes to hear out of their operatic context. The performance is crisp and somewhat light, not ponderous or overly dark. If you are looking for a recording of the standard Wagner preludes and overtures, this is a good choice." Report Abuse
