Remarks
Broadcast from the Bayreuth festival
A production by Wieland Wagner (1951)
In all CD releases the first act Siegfried is from the Krauss cycle (10 August 1955). Because the cast is the same this went unnoticed for a long time. The correct first act was released by the Allegro LP label in the fifties. The sound is vastly inferior because it stems from an AM-broadcast.
This recording is part of a complete Ring cycle.
