Despite some idiotic negative "reviews" this performance is superior to anything to appear in teh last 20 years. There are short missing passages but unless you're following it with an orchestral score (which most of you can't read anyway) you'll never miss them. Flagstad and Svanholm are in fine voice and Fjeldstad is a conductor far better than Solti or other recent ones. The Naxos release is better than the other two having better remastering and sources. If you think you're a Wagnerite, add this to your collection and quit listening to idiots.
