QuoteStupid opera. Stupid beautiful.
Quote from: Papy Oli on February 08, 2023, 05:39:23 AMMade a start in earnest on Wagner's Ring, with the Penguin book/Libretto in front of me (Translation by John Deathridge). Planning a handful of listens for each scene or act to slowly build up the familiarity with the characters and plot, before moving to the next one. Das Rheingold - Scene I.Played Karajan and Solti off the shelf earlier.Now streaming Böhm.A long journey ahead but captivated already
Quote from: Papy Oli on February 09, 2023, 08:18:44 AMCould anyone confirm please, that these two : & ... are the same versions that appear in this set ?The performers seem to match but I thought I'd ask. Thank you.

Quote from: Florestan on February 06, 2023, 04:58:22 AMThis is the very first opera Decca ever released on LP. The mono sound has aged quite well and it's actually surprisingly good. The line up, while not stellar (except for Krips), features mostly Viennese born and bred artists and it shows: impeccable diction and tasteful singing. A very enjoyable recording.
Quote from: Que on February 12, 2023, 09:31:35 AMMy favourite Old School performance is with Krips as well - but with a star line up...
Quote from: Florestan on February 12, 2023, 09:48:33 AMThanks for that. I'll certainly get it as well.
