It's ambitious, and really admirable, that the Dutch label PentaTone is celebrating its tenth anniversary with live concert recordings of Wagner's ten major operas. This Dutchman was the first installment; Gotterdammerung will be the final, released next year for the Wagner bicentennial. The recorded sound is excellent from the Berlin Philharmonie, and since the major labels have abandoned studio recordings of opera, with the most minimal exceptions, it's appealing to hear lead singers chosen from the Bayreuth roster. Sadly, the state of Wagner singing is now at an all-time low, so even the Flying Dutchman, the easiest of the operas to cast, has become problematic.

For a successful Dutchman you need two rival bass voices for the title role and for Daland, which are usually cast with a charismatic bass-baritone and a veteran bass respectively. As Daland, Matti Salminen fully fits the part vocally, as you'd expect from a powerful Finnish bass continuing a legendary line of Finnish basses; I didn't mind that the 66-year-old singer is no longer perfectly steady. As the haunted Dutchman, Albert Dohmen is also strong casting vocally, but he's a bit stolid in everything I have ever heard him in, and Die Frist ist Um, his great Act I set piece, isn't at all charismatic - no anguish or haunted quality. But the voice is so strong and virile that it more than passes muster.

Senta is the last necessary ingredient, and it's hard to cast. Although a lyrical role, it requires a heavier sorano than either Elsa or Eva. Ideal voices form the past were Leonie Rysanek, Hildegard Behrens, and Karita Mattila. They all had power without sacrificing femininity; after all, Senta is an innocent girl, even if she's call upon to do some vocal weight-lifting in the Ballad.

For me, the last really good recording of Wagner's DUTCHMAN was Klemperer's with Theo Adam in the title role seconded by Knappertsbusch's 1955 Bayreuth performance with Uhde. This new recording is the best stereo set since Klemperer's. Here we have a conductor who knows what the score is about and how it should go with soloists who know their roles and sing without shouting or being over-parted.

Rather than being packed in a slipcase with the CDs in a box and the booklet separate, this set has paper sleeves as part of the booklet. It may not hold up for library use but should do fine for home use.

Janowski's second opera in this intended complete Wagner, DIE MEISTERSINGER, is also a success.

This may very well be the best modern recording, but that says more about the dire state of modern Wagner singing than about the recording itself. If I had been in the audience at this performance, I probably would have found it acceptable. However, as a recording for repeated hearings, no way.

Both of the deep male voices are unsteady, incapable of maintaining a smooth singing line, and I could live with this, but the Senta is simply frightful with her shrieking, rasping and wobbling, and her approximate intonation. Maybe she's a good singer caught on a bad night, but this is an embarrassment. On the other hand, the chorus is glorious, if a bit underpowered.

Janowski's reading of the score is bland, with little sense of drama. If you want an excellent recording of Hollander, try the Dorati, with the magnificent black-voiced George London and the utterly committed Leonie Rysanek. Dorati makes the score sound like Parsifal, but it's never less than thrilling. Also to be recommended is the Sinopoli recording, which reminds us how close the music of Hollander is to that of Weber.
