Customer Reviews

The full version of this recording is amazing

Don't buy this highlights...you are missing out two of the best arias of the opera: The romantic and bouncy "Als du in kuhnem Sange" and the extremely spiritual "Allmachtige Jungfrau!" Also the beautiful choral piece "Zu dir wall ich". Go to your local music store and get the full version! If you're not sure you'll like this hardcore Wagnerian show, try listening to tracks 7, then 8 here (they are pretty famous) and also the closing 3 tracks...of course the full emotional effect of everythign will only happen in you listen to the whole thing from start to finish, while reading the words...but the music does speak for itself. Give it a listen!!
