Legendary conductor Fritz Reiner leads a magical performance of Wagner's only comic opera, starring the great Paul Schöffler as Hans Sachs, the cobbler-poet at the center of the story. Victoria de los Angeles is Eva, the young woman who must marry one of the mastersingers--but loves the knight Walther von Stoltzing, sung by Hans Hopf. Josef Greindl is Pogner, Eva's father, and Gerhard Pechner is Beckmesser, the pedantic town clerk who is trying to win Eva for himself.This performance is taken from the CD box set Wagner at The Met, released by Sony Classical

Vienna by Chicago Symphony Orchestra( )

19 editions published between 1957 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vienna and the waltz have long been synonymous. The first waltzes were played at Vienna's Imperial Court balls around 1660 and ever since Vienna has been best known to most people as the world's waltz capital, though it justly is proud of some other achievements. For three centuries the waltz has dominated the city's musical, social and emotional life. The Viennese listen to waltzes not only when they are happy but even in their more frequent, melancholy moods. And Johann Strauss' Blue Danube has always been Austria's true if unofficial national anthem. Nothing is certain any more but death, taxes, and the Viennese waltz which will go on forever. -- page 3 of program notes
