Tristan und Isolde by Richard Wagner( Recording )

Tristan und Isolde: Handlung in drei Aufzügen
Die Walküre by Richard Wagner( Recording )

29 editions published between 1944 and 2003 in German and Undetermined and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even by the Met's own high standards, this Walküre cast is nothing short of breathtaking. Lauritz Melchior's truly heroic Siegmund beautifully complements Rose Bampton's feminine, appealing Sieglinde. No wonder Helen Traubel (Brünnhilde) melts when she sees the depths of their love for each other. But Kerstin Thorborg's imperious Fricka is unyielding in her demands that her husband, Wotan (Herbert Janssen), punish Siegmund for breaking the laws of marriage. With menacing, black-voiced bass Alexander Kipnis as the aggrieved Hunding, and conducted by George Szell, this is Wagner at his most stirring

Lauritz Melchior heads a stellar cast in this remarkable broadcast of Wagner's Romantic opera.

This performance presents the great Leonie Rysanek in one of her most memorable roles--the teenage Judean princess Salome.

Highlights of the score include the Dance of the Seven Veils and Salome's final monologue, one of the supreme dramatic achievements in all of opera
