$8.00 USD


Jacket VG- / LP NM

This handsome LP from French RCA (630 751 A, red/silver label, mono, laminated flipback jacket) features Arturo Toscanini in a resplendent all-Wagner program, recorded with the NBC Symphony Orchestra on brilliant form. Unlike some of the Maestro's earlier NBC material, all the selections preserved here were taped in the warm, spacious acoustics of Carnegie Hall, New York.

The exact contents are as follows:

Die Walküre: Ride of the Valkyries

(rec. 3 January 1952)

Siegfried: Forest Murmurs

(rec. 29 October 1951)

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg: Prelude to Act III

(rec. 26 November 1951)

Götterdämmerung: Dawn & Siegfried's Rhine Journey

(rec. 7 January 1952)

Götterdämmerung: Siegfried's Funeral Music

(rec. 3 January 1952)

There are insightful liner notes on the reverse side of the jacket by Guy Lafarge, provided in French only. The striking cover design is uncredited.
