About

‘The excellent Mr Youn...sings with dignity touched with anguish… Merbeth...brings a big, penetrating voice to the role... Selig is a powerhouse Daland… Bruns brings an ardent voice and impetuosity to the Steersman… Thielemann...drew pulsing, dynamic and transparent playing from the...Orchestra… the result was musicmaking of overwhelming naturalness.’ – New York Times

‘...one revels in Christian Thielemann's masterly handling of the Overture’s tempo modifications and, thereafter, the lustrous sonorities that support the singers in this single-act version of the opera’ – Gramophone

‘The excellent Mr. Youn is a sympathetic and suffering Dutchman who sings with dignity touched with anguish.’ – The New York Times

‘Christian Thielemann and das Festspielorchester received the biggest cheers, and rightly so: their account – thrillingly intense and demonic, while respecting of the sweeter passages – was superlative.’ – The Financial Times
