[EuroArts 2072028] WAGNER: Lohengrin (Bayreuth Festival, 1982)
[EuroArts 2072028] WAGNER: Lohengrin (Bayreuth Festival, 1982) Peter Hofmann, Siegfried Vogel, Karan Armstrong, Leif Roar, Elizabeth Connell, Bernd Weikl, Directed for Stage by Götz Friedrich Chor der Bayreuther Fetsspiele; Orchester der Bayreuther Festspiele Woldemar Nelsson EuroArts presents this exclusive recording of Richard Wagners Opera Lohengrin live from the Bayreuth festival in 1982. Richard Wagner's three-act opera, an exquisitely lyrical piece, characterized by the composer's romantic vision of the individual's fight for freedom under an oppressive rule, has been described as Wagner's most Italianate opera This masterful and timeless interpretation by the famous opera director Götz Friedrich was filmed on the stage of the Festspielhaus in Bayreuth over a period of several days, but without audience, shortly before the start of the actual festival. In this way, undisturbed state-of-the-art filming was made possible within the limited space of the small 19th century auditorium and stage. The result is an intense, film-like rendering of one of the classic Bayreuth stagings with an ensemble of stars including Karen Armstrong and Bernd Weikl. The title-role is particularly suited to the dramatic and musical talents of Peter Hofmann, whose adoption of Wagnerian roles in the eighties before Parkinson disease forced his farewell from the stage - has been received with international and ongoing praise. He was the star of Wagner interpretation for more than a decade and this DVD pays tribute to the artists skills. www.naxos.com

Richard Wagner - Siegfried - Der Ring des Nibelungen - act 2^ part 6
Richard Wagner - Siegfried - Der Ring des Nibelungen - act 2^ part 6 "Zur Kunde taugt kein Toter"/"Wohin schleichst"/"Was ihr mit Nützt, weiss ich". "Siegfried", third of the four operas of "Der Ring des Nibelungen" (The Ring of the Nibelung). Music and text by Richard Wagner (1813-1883). Conductor: Georg Solti & Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra Wagner's essential peculiarity is the representation of the drama as an element of introspection; his operas can't be considered operas in the traditional meaning of the word, but great compositions where music, singing, poetry and psychology merge to interpret the life. In Wagner's conception the drama expect an almost religious attention, which the public has to attend to as the story takes place in his mind; so the drama rises magically from the imagination of the public before being in music. The music of the Cycle is composed by a mosaic of leading motifs, the leitmotiv, which embode characters or feelings, so their continuos reappearing produces a sort of psychological premonition. No closed-form pieces or arias interfer with the free flow of the narration which goes on without solution of continuity from the beginning to the end of every act, subjecting the singing to the comment of an orchestra enormous for the number of instruments and resonant wideness. It is also important in Wagner the use of chromatism, that incessant wave of chromatic spirals which is took to extremes till it leave the tonal structure. The characters of these operas are taken from the old Norse mythology; the principle ...
