5.0 out of 5 stars A very very special recording 5 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD
This live 1943 Bayreuth recording is something very special. Forget the not very hi-fi sound, forget the fact that the opening chorus and the Act III quintet are missing - in no other recording of this opera is the orchestra so eloquently responsive and alive to every detail in the drama. It is a profoundly moving example of Furtwängler's art. Whatever other recording of Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg you might already have, if you don't have this one, add it to your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest tenor ever? 29 Jan 2012
Format:MP3 Download
I do not attempt to write a review of the performance of a whole.
I take serious issue with the criticism of Max Lorenz. At the time of this performance he was 41. His voice is astonishingly powerful and thrilling.
I do not hear the alleged scooping.
What has been written is so at odds with what is there for all to hear that
I can only wonder if the criticism is born of some undisclosed prejudice.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great conductor, weak cast, flawed text 15 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD
First things first. This is "Die Meistersinger," an operatic ... sorry, RW ... a music drama masterpiece that the composer set forth in the AAB form of a Meisterlied--although an unusually long one.

SOURCE:
This is a live recording of a wartime performance at the Bayreuth Festival.

SOUND:
Overall, the sound is not bad, considering its age. It does set my teeth on edge during the prelude and again in the great procession of guilds in Act III, a passage that is not helped by the choristers whooping it up a little too much in the background.

TEXT:
The text of the recording has suffered the vicissitudes of fate and time. The most notable omissions are the meeting of Eva and Walther in the church in Act I and, far, far worse, the great quintet in Act III. It is widely held, and probably true that the omissions arose from simple equipment failure at the Festival.

COMMENTARY:
The conducting is wonderful throughout--exactly as one would expect from such an extraordinary man on the podium.

The singers, alas, were not a match for the conductor. Greindl's Pogner was easily the best performance in the opera. Prohaska as Hans Sachs was light of voice compared to most who take the role, but that is not necessarily such a bad thing. Eva sounded downright elderly to be the prize in a contest derived from fairy tales. Magdalena was forgettable (as always.) Then there was the tenor, Max Lorenz, who once had been pretty good. Here, though, he offered an excellent portrayal of a man ardently preparing to toss a caber: "Morgenlicht--umph--leucte im--umph--rO-O-sigen schein--UMPH!" Compared to the David, though, he was Orpheus himself.

Here, though, he offered an excellent portrayal of a man ardently preparing to toss a caber: "Morgenlicht--umph--leucte im--umph--rO-O-sigen schein--UMPH!" Compared to the David, though, he was Orpheus himself. The foolish, young apprentice sounds about ninety years old, and it seems to take him just about that long to explain the rules of Mastersingers in ACT I. Admittedly, that is a tedious passage at the best of times, but this really is too much. Finally there is poor, sour Beckmesser, here portrayed as even older and more dried up than ususal. It would be nice to hear a baritone portray Sixtus as a viable rival for the hand of Eva, as he, himself, clearly thinks he is. After all, "Beckmesser, kein besser!"

To me, the best part of this performance is the scene toward the end of Act I in which the Mastersingers arrive for the great roll call. For anyone but Wagner, it would be a throw-away scene, something to be excised after a bad first night But here the buildup of the orchestra and the entry of the lesser principals add up to make the Guild of Mastersingers into something a little grander than merely human, just as RW wanted. And every one of those lesser members of the cast sings better than the ostensible stars portraying Walther, David and Beckmesser.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunningly good transfer of this transcendent performance 29 Sep 2005
By R. Grames - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Just a brief recommendation. One cannot ignore the evil, chaos and misery that surrounded the theater in which this most life-affirming of comedies is being played. But when that is set aside to consider the artistic achievement one can only be amazed. These artists are protesting the evil that they were entertaining. This is an oasis of what is best in man in the sea of depravity that Germany was in 1943. Furtwangler is a beacon in the darkness. One may question his decision to stay, but here he, to my mind, vindicates his decision by creating such a powerful message of human goodness for all those willing to hear it.

This is a performance that every Wagnerite should own. There is no better transfer than Music & Art's.

Most urgently recommended!
5.0 out of 5 stars An historic Meistersinger 28 May 2013
By Anne Siegel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a prime example of Wagner performance as it used to be, but ,alas, is no more. Singers with vibrant, attractive voices, more than equal to the demands of the music, who have performed this music over a period of years and really inhabit their roles to gives us a complete vocal and dramatic experience, plus a superb conductor who captures avery nuance. If one can hold their nose over the provenance of the recording it is very rewarding.

2.0 out of 5 stars Historical only, really 24 Jun 2009
By Theodore Shulman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Furtwangler is fine and Greindl is amazing even if you don't add points for his youth--mid-thirties! But Jaro Prohashka, well, sucks. He's the third-worst Sachs I've ever heard, better only than Fischer-Dieskau and Jose van Dam. He desperately needs a German language coach. Max Lorenz fails utterly to demonstrate how his singing kept him out of the concentration camps! His singing lacks line. I don't know what Herr Goebbels saw in him.
