Wagner Recordings by Outstanding Maestros

April 27, 2013

This year is the 200 anniversary of the birth of Richard Wagner. After electrical recording started in 1925, there was an explosion of recording of Wagner's music, and in the parade of conductors putting on discs Wagner's Preludes, Overtures, and Interludes were such outstanding maestros as Albert Coates, Karl Muck, Leo Blech, and Leopold Stokowski. We'll hear some of those recordings.
