The 5 star reviewer is very kind in his judgement of this set. At the time of writing it is at first glance one of only 5 recordings in Stereo of the now less favoured Dresden Version of this work, the others being the deeply unsatisfactory Gerdes, the rather better Konwitschny in very early stereo, the disappointing Haitink and the newly released Janowski. However, this is not quite the case as Barenboim incorporates the Paris version (should really be called the Vienna version) duet between Heinrich and Venus after the Dresden Bacchanale-really strange. Jane Eaglen is simply awful as Elizabeth-her big wobbly voice is totally unsuited to this (or in my view any other!) role and her casting is inexplicable to me! Waltraud Meier isn't the sexiest Venus either, but at least sings with her usual beautiful firm and rounded tone. Seiffert was in his prime and is a fine Tannhauser, and the rest of the cast are first rate, especially Hampson. Barenboim exhibits all his usual quirks as a Wagner conductor-sudden inexplicable accelerandi followed by leaden tempi at times-but gets away with it in this uneven work. The recording is very detailed if a touch dry-sounding, and the playing is predictably superb. My preference is for the later edition-Paris-Tannhauser, and there I would opt for Solti-still after all these years- as first choice, though the Sinopoli is also superb if you can live with Domingo's mangling of German. If you want a "nearly" Dresden version then this is really the only choice, but huge allowances have to be made. Lukewarm recommendation from this reviewer. Stewart Crowe
Since writing my original review of the set on its first issue, the Konwitschny Berlin Opera recording of the very early stereo era has been reissued by EMI.

Wonderful interpretation of this legendary work by Richard Wagner. This Dresden Version delivers the same impact and quality as The Paris Version as performed by Sir Georg Solti with Decca in 1971.

This is the most satisfying perfomance I have had the pleasure of hearing. It has superb quality sound and impeccable singing all brought to outstanding heights by the magic of Daniel Barenboim. A must for all who love Wagner.
