5.0 out of 5 starsGreat recording at the wrong price24 April 2006
By Orlando - Published on Amazon.com
This is one of the greatest Wagner recordings ever made, and EMI issued it a few years ago on its Great Recordings of the Century label - at MID-PRICE - so why is it being offered at this outrageous price? Get it elsewhere!

5.0 out of 5 starsWagner: Der fliegende Holländer21 Oct 2007
By Bjorn Viberg - Published on Amazon.com
Wagner: Der fliegende Holländer is a truly astounding recording with the legendary conductor Otto Klemperer. The sound quality is so good that one actually feels as if one was present at the recording of this back in 1968. EMI have produced a quite big book-let (154 pages). The essay written by Richard Osbourne is informative and well-written. The photographs are a bit grainy but one has to bear in mind that they were taken almost 40 years ago and cameras were not as good then as they are now. The entire text is there in two languages (English and French). This is a recording not to be missed. 5 well deserved stars.
