Richard Wagner is the undisputed father of music-drama, where the orchestra became as important as the singers. Often excerpts from Wagner's music-dramas are inappropriately referred to as "bleeding hunks." But the public should not be denied hearing this music outside complete performances of the music-dramas. The excerpts on this CD are effective entities, primarily because the performances use original scores from the complete operas with all of Wagner's orchestration intact. Revel in the power and glory of Wagner's trailblazing vision.
