Notes and Editorial Reviews
Three important reissues feature exquisite coloratura soprano
Rita Streich, bass
Boris Christoff, and heldentenor Wolfgang Windgassen, all recorded when the singers were in their prime... Wolfgang Windgassen (1914-1974) sang all of the major Wagner roles at Bayreuth from 1951 to 1970; excerpts from many of these are included on this CD, monophonic recordings made from 1953-1955 with various orchestras and conductors.
