Under the dual influences of Goethe and Berlioz, Wagner wrote A Faust Overture in Paris. Years later, in 1855, he returned to the work, revising it to create an even greater sense of drama and narrative conviction. In the excerpts from his romantic opera Lohengrin we hear the visionary Prelude to Act I and the Act III Prelude, which includes the well-known Wedding March. Elsa’s Dream is sung by the internationally acclaimed soprano, Alessandra Marc. The orchestral music from Parsifal contains some of the most transcendent music Wagner ever wrote..

"...An impressive account of the overture to Der Fliegende Holländer makes a positive opening statement. High on drama, it is very nicely judged and well balanced. Schwarz’s superb control of dynamics is enhanced by the intensely fine sound engineering ... At their price, these discs are certainly well worth acquiring, especially if sound quality is of primary concern…they are never anything less than entirely sound interpretations that will offer a great deal of pleasure."
