This week we celebrate Wagner's 210th birthday with a very special release of his music, as performed by Toscanini and the NBC Symphony Orchestra - his season-closing All-Wagner concert of 1938 and a special Parsifal Orchestral Synthesis from its sole performance of 1940.
The 1938 All-Wagner concert began with A Faust Overture and was followed by various preludes, overtures and orchestral music from six different operas: Lohengrin, Tannhäuser, Tristan und Isolde, Parsifal, Götterdämmerung and Die Walküre. Both this and the 1940 Parsifal performance can be heard in unprecedented Ambient Stereo XR remastered sound quality.
