CD Reviews

Stunning performances of Wagner excerpts
Conrad H. Weisert | Chicago, Illinois USA | 02/10/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"These performances from forty years ago have never been surpassed for clarity and excitement. RCA's early stereo sound in pre-renovation orchestra hall still sounds impressive. Very highly recommended."
Great Wagner, wish there were more!

"In addition to being a Richard Strauss specialist, Reiner was noted as a conductor of Wagner. His experience with Wagner's works from the 1930's in various opera houses around the world and at the Metropolitan Opera from 1949-53 is evident here. Reiner's command and control in these excerpts makes them sound completely different from other conductors' performances. I only wish that there had been an additional Reiner/Chicago Wagner album or two, as had been done by George Szell in Cleveland. The sound is not the best by the Mohr/Layton team; it seems as if there was tape overloading in the fortissimo passages.This CD is filled out with Reiner's 1960 Chicago recording of Richard Strauss' "Don Juan." Recommended for the unique Wagner performances, not the sound."

"Para los amantes de la gloriosa música de Richard Wagner, este disco de Fritz Reiner es realmente para disfrutar. La claridad del sonido del perfeccionista Reiner, sumados al carácter brillante y contundente que es la característica de éste Maestro dan como resultado, un disco de primera calidad. El Don Juan de Strauss, es sencillamente una de las mejores opciones en el mercado. El sonido es muy noble.Fuertemente recomendado."
