I bought this today having heard a review on BBC Radio 3. I had heard about this recording many years ago and had always hoped too at least hear it. I have 5 or 6 versions of the Four Last Songs and get something from all of them. But this is very special, the singing is sublime as is the orchestral playing. The sound, considering that the source is of poor quality, is excellent. Flagstad's voice soars above the orchestra and she is totally immersed in the songs. The Wagner pieces are equally good. Concerts like this come along every now and again and I am so glad that a recording was made. Thanks to Testament, they have done a great job of restoring this performance.
