Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Following on after the box containing Solti's unsurpassed Ring cycle, Decca have handsomely repackaged his other Wagner recordings, which are now available separately at mid-price for the first time...Superlative playing from the VPO, and Christa Ludwig as Venus outshining all rivals. The 1971 sound remains impressive." - Penguin Guide to Compact Discs & DVDs 2005/06 Edition "Following on after the box containing Solti's unsurpassed Ring cycle, Decca have handsomely repackaged his other Wagner recordings, which are now available separately at mid-price for the first time...Superlative playing from the VPO, and Christa Ludwig as Venus outshining all rivals.
