Overture, The Flying Dutchman; Wesendonck-Lieder; Tristan und Isolde.The opening piece is the gloriously conducted ’Overture to The Flying Dutchman’. Kirsten Flagstad has a beautiful voice and sings with consummate skill in the’Wesendonck Lieder’ and ’Liebestod’(from ’Isolde’). – First Authorised Release.
The usual stunning Beecham conducting. Flagstad also speaks about her singing approach to Wagner - it should be required listening for all young singers today!
