Leopold Ludwig conducts the chorus of the Hamburg State Opera and the Philharmonic Hamburg State Orchestra. * A quick glance at the cast list of this film production of Die Meistersinger reveals the surprising fact that the vocal protagonists -- all stars of international repute -- were almost all associated with the Hamburg State Opera ensemble. * This production fascinates with its appealing classical staging, the brilliance of the whole cast and the great camera shots, which only could be realised in a studio production like this: with the result that the audience finds itself placed amidst the scene. * The role of Walter von Stolzing is here appropriately sung by Richard Cassilly, praised as "one of the great heldentenors of his generation." http://www.naxos.com/catalogue/item.asp?item_code=101273 BUY / DOWNLOAD / STREAM: NaxosDirect US http://bit.ly/29EVYb8 NaxosDirect UK http://bit.ly/29F5LwT Amazon US http://amzn.to/29y1QlT Amazon UK http://amzn.to/29Elcub ArkivMusic http://bit.ly/29F61wM
