Recorded live at the Royal Festival Hall across two evenings in October 1991, this is Wagner singing and playing of the highest order. Kollo is magnificent, a true Heldentenor; his ringing tone is striking, the slight catch in his voice immensely touching. Bundschuh (an imaginative piece of casting) and Tomlinson are also both fine, and an ailing Tennstedt conjures an intensity and concentration from his devoted players that belies the physical challenges he was facing. Recommended.
