WAGNER: The Best of Overtures & Preludes - Acoustic Reality Experience [7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio Disc] [Blu-ray]



The Robert Schumann Philharmonie (of Chemnitz, Germany), and its celebrated conductor Oleg Caetani, presenting all favourite Wagnerian overtures and preludes. Those of us for whom time is in short supply will undoubtedly appreciate the fact that this disc allows us to enjoy such pieces without having to wade through hours of operas to get to them. Featured tracks include numbers from master works such as: Der fliegende Holländer (The flying Dutchman); Lohengrin ; Tannhäuser ; Die Walküre (The Ryde of the Valkyries); and Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg. Moreover, as a special bonus a world premier recording of the overture from the somewhat rare König Enzio .
