Wagner, Richard - Composer
Playing Time: 00:58:18
Catalogue Number: EuroArts5303
This recording provides us with a portrait of a man whose conducting technique contrasts fascinatingly with that of the other conductors in our In Rehearsal and Performance series. Sir Georg Solti's rehearsal and performance of Wagner's Tannhauser Overture with the Stuttgart Sudfunk Symphony Orchestra is a fine illustration of this conductor's insistence on absolute precision, his energetic style and his close familiarity with the score.
