 Wagner Without the Fat Lady and Big Guy September 24, 2014 By owen  r. (lakewood, CA) See All My Reviews "Vernon Handley known primarily for his renditions of works by english composers gives us some selections from Wagner's operas sounding most teutonic and unenglish like. Here's all the drama without the singing (I like it like that). The opera purist might not approve but the rest of us can enjoy these excellent performances recorded to the highest standards. This is an complementary companion to the ''Ring Without Words'' conducted by Lorin Maazel with the Berlin Philharmoniker (Telarc 80154). This disc is well worth its normal bargain price but at Arkiv's sale price for the Allegro RPO recordings (5 a $20) it is an absolute steal." Report Abuse
