Biography

“The urgency and depth of his conducting are irresistible.”
Gramophone, London, June 2006
Christian Thielemann was born in Berlin in 1959 and began what Karajan called the classical conductor’s “hard but indispensable slog” through numerous small theatres at an early age. After 20 years of operatic experience, Thielemann, who also has been guest ... Read more in Amazon's Christian Thielemann Store

4.0 out of 5 stars No problems with the stage noises at all 2 Dec 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was looking for a copy of Parsifal, and not being familiar with the many performances of Wagner operas available, I alighted on this one as very reasonably priced for a 4 CD set. I was encouraged by its great soloists and conductor but somewhat puzzled by the 2 existing reviews of this set, one giving it 5 stars and one giving it just 1. Anyway, I decided to take the plunge for at this price it seemed worth the gamble.

I am a relative newcomer to Wagner, only recently having become acquainted with his works, but I can honestly say I have been blown away with this recording. The soloists, orchestra and ensemble pieces are all excellent, I find the performance engaging and moving, the CD is well packaged with an excellent booklet with synopsis, a short essay and full libretto. I thoroughly enjoyed it at first listening and haven't been able to leave it alone since.

A word about the stage nosies referred to by another reviewer. I had expected to find them offputting but in fact they had the opposite effect on me. I found that they added to that sense of being there at a great live performance, enhancing my imaging of the drama. True, if you don't like stage noises, there are quite a lot of them and so you'd be better going for a studio version, but I for one, found them to be no problem at all.

All in all I think this is an excellent recording and superb value. If you love Wagner, or if like me you are a beginner, buy this now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Impressive, beautiful 7 Mar 2009
By enthusiast TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Firstly, this set sounds very good indeed. It is true the stage noises are louder than is usual for a recording but I wasn't distracted by this (except listening to it while driving once and thinking my engine was making a strange noise!).

Secondly, it is an enthralling performance that engages one from the opening bars and leaves you blissfully satisfied at the end. The singers are very strong. I don't know other performances of this work (somehow I have so far missed out on Parsifal while exploring Wagner) but have certainly been rewarded a hundred times by this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Parsifal 30 July 2008
Format:Audio CD
I thought this a great recording. I love the stage-sounds just like you are there. Much preferred this to my earlier DG Domingo recording. This really does pull you in. Thanks to the other reviewers here for challenging me to listen! 8)

2.0 out of 5 stars Noisy Wagner 7 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the worst recordings I have heard. The Penguin CD Guide must have been based on the live performance and not this recording. The noise of singers moving about on stage (in army-boots) and the movement of stage machinery and props etc. is all too prominent - as loud as the singing in many places. This gives the recording an amateurish feel ie. done on a cassette recorder in the front row of the stalls (like in the film Diva!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Good product but broken plastic case 1 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
Nothing wrong with the sound quality of this shrink-wrapped CD, although the plastic case was already broken prior to despatch- part of the plastic case is missing that allows the case to be opened & closed (if it was originally shrink-wrapped, then the vendor could not have known the case was broken). Although this isn't a serious problem, it means the case will always come away in your hands when opening it. Only a replacement case will do, which isn't easy to find for a 4-CD box.
