Format: Audio CD
Karajan appeared briefly at Bayreth after its postwar reopening but then bowed out, never to return. There are pirates and airchecks of his Wagner performances, including a Rheingold and Tristan, but to myy knowledge the only official Bayreuth recording was EMI's live Meistersinger, now a classic despite its inadequate mono sound.

This single CD of the last act of Walkure is also a classic, widely circulated in a References issue and now refurbished. There's only so much that can be done with the rather boxy mono, but that is beside the point. Here is postwar Wagner singing at a very high level propelled by Karajan's inspired conducting. Many consider the Fifties to be Karajan's greatest era, and this impassioned performance could be offered as evidence. Varnay makes a great impression as Brunnhilde, Bjoerling less so as Wotan, although he is never less than good. The eight Valkyries have never been bettered.

All in all, one of the indispensable Wagner recordings from that era, which seems golden in retrospect.

Since i heard this recording from the first time, it makes me shake and tremble to hear those powerful voices over and over...First, the eight valkyries sound gloriouslyat the beginning of the act, in the 'ryde of the valkyries'. Then Varnay and Rysanek just steal the show inmediately. Varnay's voice is sublime, specially when the 'Immolation theme' appears in her desperate try to protect sieglinde from Wotan. Sigurd Bjoerling is as good as George London at his best...him and Varnay and so good together, and the rest we hear is pure extasy. Rysanek is great even Sieglinde doesn'r have much chance to show her abilities as in act 1.

Even the sound is not perfect stereo, the sound is powerful, specially if you listen in a good musis system...or even better, on your Bose speakers for ipod...or with very good noiseless headphones too.

This recording is worth every single minute...!

By no means are the 50s Karajan's finest period, therefore this 1951 live performance is not quite up there with his tremendous studio account for DG from 1966. Nevertheless, it is a very interesting peformance well worth listening. Karajan's sensitivity to Wagner's subtlety is quite evident even here. Neither the rambunctious Ride of the Valkyries that opens the act nor the mighty climaxes in Wotan's Farewell that close it show any traces of sloppy execution or bombastic heroics. The reading is lyrical and intensely beautiful, but not in the least does it lack passion or drama. Astrid Varnay is a compelling Bruennhilde in glorious voice. There is nothing to complain in Leonie Rysanek's Sieglinde either, including her one great, soaring moment. But the real star here is Sigurd Bjoerling as Wotan. Authoritative and majestic, in splendid voice with perfect diction that easily covers the whole range between thunder and whisper, he is embarrassingly superior to Hotter's inexplicably celebrated barking in this role. The sound is excellent mono for a live recording from 1951. The voices are favoured, as is always the case in Bayreuth, but the orchestra comes off clearly and naturally. The booklet contains fine liner notes by Richard Osborne and the complete libretto of the third act. An indispensable disc for Wagner and Karajan fans alike. Get it!

Let me just say I can't imagine a more emotionally charged act 3 than here.
Although Sigurd Bjorling gets little notoriety he is wonderful and the strength of this act..
He sounds like a younger Wotan than usually encountered but he is touching and powerful.
And Astrid Varnay equally so. Her shading of the vocal line is one of a kind. Their dialogue together is so moving.
Then there's Leonie Rysanek, brief perhaps, but that voice soars with freedom and richness.
Von Karajan's youthful energy is in evident too.
Listening to this recording one does wish it was attached to acts 1 & 2. What a great performance it is.
And what's so remarkable is it marks the beginning of several international careers.

This disk was first recorded on 12th August 1951 in the Festspiehaus - Bayreuth and published with permission of Wienland and Wolfgang Wagner.

"" Quite apart from its intrinsic merits, this recording has a claim to honorable mention in at least three places in the history books. The history of recoded sound distinguishes it as the first live recording of a complete Act of The Ring. In the story of Bayreuth it has a special place as representing something of the first Ring produced there after the Second World War. In the career of Herbert von Karajan it finds him in his first season at Bayreuth and on the threshold of the international success which accorded him such an exalted place in the musical world of his time"" Thus wrote John B. Steane in part of his 1993 introduction to this recording.

Die Walküre is the second of the four operas that constitute Der Ring des Nibelungen (The Ring of the Nibelung), composed by Richard Wagner. Niberlung is a companion or follower of Siegfried - a German mythology speaking of the race of dwarfs who possessed a treasure hoard that was stolen by Siegfried.

As much as I could gather, Die Walküre (The Valkyrie) is Norse saga telling the adventures of any of the beautiful maidens attendant upon the supreme god Odin who bring the souls of slain warriors chosen by Odin or Tyr - son of Odin - to Valhalla and there wait upon them.
{{Valhalla is the hall in which the souls of those heroes were received by Odin. Norse is a native or inhabitant of Norway}}

Wagner premiered this opera on June 26, 1870 at the National Theatre in Munich.

Act 3: Prelude music, Brunnhilde's pleading (War es so schmählich), Wotan's Farewell (Leb' wohl, and Magic Fire Music.
