London Philharmonic Orchestra
Released from the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s archives for the first time, Wagner’s Die Walküre is one of the world’s most popular operas. Heard here, Act 1 is often performed alone in concert; it is a rich concentration of human love, loyalty and blood ties, packed full of thrilling music, revealing Wagner’s assured grasp of orchestral colouring and musical opulence.
This concert performance is vividly brought to life by Klaus Tennstedt and three of the greatest exponents of these roles in recent times – René Kollo, Eva-Maria Bundschuh and John Tomlinson.
The three soloists featured on this release are especially known for their Wagnerian roles; René Kollo sang Erik in The Flying Dutchman at Bayreuth in 1970; Eva-Maria Bundschuh also sang roles from Senta in The Flying Dutchman through to Venus in Tannhäuser. John Tomlinson performed for eighteen consecutive seasons at the festivals of Bayreuth.
This recording marks the sixteenth release with Klaus Tennstedt on the LPO Label since it was established in 2005; his first was a 1992 recording of orchestral excerpts from Wagner operas released in May 2005.
This recording is taken from live concert performances at the Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall on 7 and 10 October 1991.
