Notes and Editorial Reviews
Richard the First and Richard the Third - Wagner and Strauss - share this disc. These titles were conferred by the conductor Hans von Bulow, who said that after Wagener there could be no Richard the Second. There is no doubt that, one way or the other, they dominated German music for a hundred years. Here they are represented by works slighter than their major operatic masterpieces, but masterly nonetheless.
