4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully conducted "Hollaender" 26 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
If you want the original version of "The Flying Dutchman" and are interested above all in great conducting, this is the version for you. Klemperer presents the storm and sea of this piece as no other conductor on record and makes Wagner sound almost like Beethoven, whose music was an obvious influence for this opera. Silja is as always dramatically impressive. She sounds wild and obsessed, but her top notes can be extremely unsteady. I still prefer Rysanek in this role. Adam in the title role offers a nice voice, but he doesn't project the curse and struggle of this character at all. In the duet with Silja it almost sounds like she is singing to a wall. Talvela has a very impressive instrument, appropriate for the "father" role, and he attempts to bring some humor in his encouter with the Dutchman, but at the end it all doesn't go too far. So, the recording is worth for Klemperer's inimitable conducting and Silja's larger-than-life approach. But to find out how the title role should go, check Hotter's or Krass' accounts.
