Remarks
Broadcast from the Bayreuth festival
A production by Wieland Wagner (1961)
There are actually two different Tannhäuser recordings from the Bayreuth festival 1962. This one is the live broadcast. The Philips recording from the same year is a live compilation featuring Anja Silja instead of Victoria de los Ángeles as Elisabeth otherwise the cast is the same. The Philips recording is in stereo, this one is mono.
