Parsifal (WWV 111) is an opera in three acts by Richard Wagner. It is loosely based on Parzival by Wolfram von Eschenbach, a 13th-century epic poem of the Arthurian knight Parzival (Percival) and his quest for the Holy Grail (12th century). Wagner first conceived the work in April 1857 but did not finish it until twenty-five years later. It was Wagner's last completed opera and in composing it he took advantage of the particular acoustics of his Bayreuth Festspielhaus. Parsifal was first produced at the second Bayreuth Festival in 1882. The Bayreuth Festival maintained a monopoly on Parsifal productions until 1903, when the opera was performed at the Metropolitan Opera in New York.

One of the great Wagnerian conductors. What makes this extra special in Knappertbusch's oeuvre, is that it's a combination of a decent "studio" sound (not a live recording), a great orchestra and the top wagnerian singers of the day. One of the best Wagner 'greatest hits' disc's ever.

Marlies Mittermann ist Kommissarin bei der Wiener Kriminalpolizei. Sie liebt ihren Beruf sehr und setzt ihren ganzen Ehrgeiz daran, die ihr anvertrauten Fälle zu lösen – sehr zum Leidwesen ihrs Mannes Helmut, der ebenfalls bei der Kripo arbeitet und mit der Konkurrenz im eigenen Haus nicht fertig wird. Marlies entschließt sich, die Scheidung einzureichen. Als eine Serie von Frauenmorden Wien in Atem hält, betreut zunächst Helmut diese Fälle. Da er bei seinen Ermittlungen nicht weiterkommt, wird ihm der Fall entzogen und Marlies übergeben. Diese hat es nun nicht mehr nur mit einem rätselhaften Frauenmörder zu tun, sondern auch mit einem Ehemann, der all ihre Bemühungen sabotiert.

This recording of a live performance of MEISTERSINGER from Bayreuth 1957 definitely merits five stars. For those of you who don't already know this, Gustav Neidlinger (PeaceBeUponHim) was the undisputed master of Wagner's "howling-and-spitting" villain roles, Alberich and Klingsor, from the early 1950s until the mid 1970s. He sang with unmatched sulfur, cannon-ball density, huge volume, dark tone, and powerful dramatic interpretation. He sang more spontaneously and from-the-gut than most singers. He was the first of his generation to sing these roles with musical line and connected legato, rather than as a series of isolated shouts, grunts, and bellowings. He was typecast for these villainous roles as soon as he set foot on the stage, and almost never performed as a good-guy.
