Format: Audio CD
It's a cause for rejoicing that EMI has returned this recording back to the catalogue--and at a much lower price than its last incarnation as a double-CD in the "Great Recordings Of The Century" series. These are just tremendous performances, with very good sound, and a complete no-brainer if you are thinking of getting it. One listen and you will be hooked, even if you have other Wagner highlights recordings. Of all the highlight sets I have, this one is the best. Without a doubt, Otto Klemperer was one of the ten greatest conductors of the 20th century. And this is one of the highlights of his great career.
