Neeme Jarvi conducts the Royal Scottish National Orchestra in the second of four albums featuring the bold arrangements of Wagner by Henk de Vlieger. Of the first album, Classic FM magazine wrote 'Dutch composer Henk de Vlieger builds a penetrating symphonic poem that reflects the dramatic depths of The Ring.'
In Parsifal, an orchestral quest, commissioned by the Netherland Radio Philharmonic Orchestra and dedicated to the musicians of this orchestra, Henk de Vlieger has compiled the musical and emotional highlights of Wagner's opera, and whenever necessary he has stitched these into a new context. Thus De Vlieger retells the story of Parsifal with Wagner's music.

And if you have enjoyed these Wagnerian "Opera ohne Worte" artrangements by Henk de vlieger, be on the lookout for his "Die Meistersinger" (yes, really!)soon to be released,along with two Wagner rarieties, the two "Entre-actes Tragiques" fragments the composer's early days.
I have three complete Parsifals and all of the Stokowski sytheses -- in 78 and in modern sound. This is a recording I will listen to frequently.
I WISH Amazon would bring out the companion "Ring Adventure" as an MP3 download.
