Description

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg (CD)

Hans Knappertsbusch is regarded as one of the great Wagner conductors of the past and his Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg does not disappoint.

This recording was perfomed at the 1960 Bayreuth Festival with the choir and orchestra of the festival.

The cast is full of extraordinary performances by Theo Adam (Veit Pogner), Karl Schmitt-Walter (Beckmesser), gerhard Stolze (David), and more. Josef Greindl's debut in the role of Hans Sachs is a true highpoint in this production. Evan is portrayed by the superb Elisabeth Grümmer who sings with perfection, touching emotion, and convincing youthfulness.

Knappertsbusch's interpretation of this magnificent work by Wagner is very cultivated and restrained, supportive of the voices, and overall exciting and festive!
