Die Meistersinger Von NÜrnberg
GREINDL ADAM KRUG KOCH SCHMITT-WALTER
Hans Knappertsbusch is regarded as one of the great Wagner conductors of the past and his Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg does not disappoint! | This recording was perfomed at the 1960 Bayreuth Festival with the choir and orchestra of the festival. | The cast is full of extraordinary performances by Theo Adam (Veit Pogner), Karl Schmitt-Walter (Beckmesser), gerhard Stolze (David), and more. | Josef Greindl's debut in the role of Hans Sachs is a true highpoint in this production. | Evan is portrayed by the superb Elisabeth Grümmer who sings with perfection, touching emotion, and convincing youthfulness. | Knappertsbusch's interpretation of this magnificent work by Wagner is very cultivated and restrained, supportive of the voices, and overall exciting and festive!
