Wagner: Complete Overtures 3-CD Set


$ 19.98

This 3-CD set contains the complete Overtures as well as the orchestral interludes from Richard Wagner’s operas. This music spans Wagner’s whole life, from the early overture Die Feen, in the German Romantic style of Carl Maria von Weber, to the great love music from Tristan & Isolde, in which Wagner perfected his concept of the Gesamtkunstwerk, in which music, words and visual drama becomes one experience. These are excellent performances of red-hot intensity from the Philharmonia Orchestra, conducted by Yuri Simonov.
