I bought this Bernard Haitink recording on CD sometime in the 1990s and have never looked back. This is the original Dresden recording and therefore quite a bit shorter than Solti's recording. I recall at the time that critics weren't all that impressed, finding Haitink's conducting a bit lightweight. However, in researching comment for this review, I did see some very positive comments from the Wagner scholar and critic Barry Millington.
I have listened to this recording again and was completely enthralled. The conducting doesn't seem lightweight to me and I think that Haitink had a real dramatic flair [he wasn't that experienced at opera when he made this recording in 1984], especially compared to Gerdes. The orchestra is the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, who play beautifully and had me marvelling at Wagner's genius in writing for orchestra; just listen to the brass fanfares at the end of the first act. The chorus of Bavarian Radio too makes a gloriously rich sound - which is very important in this opera.
The solo singing is fantastic - I don't think there is a weak link.Read more ›
Wachter as Wolfram is superb. The young Silja puts her heart into Elisabeth although the occasional sour note intrudes. Greindl as the Landgrave was definitely having an off night. I would venture that this was recorded during exceptionally hot weather. Bumbry was an unusual choice for Venus
but does not disappoint. The recording is good. I give five stars for the contributions of Windgasssen, Wachter and Sawallisch.
