Christa Ludwig, René Kollo, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Gottlob Frick, Wiener Staatsopernchor, Wiener - Wagner: Parsifal (4 CDS + BRD) (CD 5 DISC SET)

"The evenness of the cast is a strong asset here...Ludwig's is the most securely and warmly sung Kundryon any version, CD or LP, and achieves all the agonized feeling and crazed passion of her rivals without any resort to vocal exaggeration...Fischer-Dieskauexpresses, as one would expect, every aspect of Amfortas'stortured soul and mind." GRAMOPHONE, 1986

"Solti's singing cast could hardly be stronger, every one of them pointing words with fine, illuminating care for detail; and the complex balances of sound, not least in the Good Friday Music, are beautifully caught" PENGUIN GUIDE TO CLASSICAL MUSIC
