Notes and Editorial Reviews
This Wagner shares with the recent Gerontius broadcast the rare ability, almost Furtwangler-like, to stand the music still (without losing momentum) for better display in the grandest passages. This conductor manages well the tricky balancing of stately operatic grandeur and musically dramatic momentum in this work. Nylund is a vocally fearless heroine, Youn is an imposing Herald, and Struckmann is textually clear and more baritone-sounding as the King. Despite some vocal reservations, this performance - and its recorded sound - is a valuable and mostly compelling document.
