The orchestra sounds great. The piece is one of my favorites of Wagner. The excess and lavishness of his orchestration is evident in the rustling strings, powerful brass, and tentative woodwinds. Great piece.
Barry Tuckwell has done it again! These wonderful Wagner overtures are simply stunning. A must buy.
