Product Description

CD13597 Wagner Gotterdammerung 1956 Oslo

As requested, I have uploaded the 1956 Decca Gotterdammerung from the original LPs - this is taken from Oslo radio broadcasts on January 5 (Act 1), January 8 (Act 2) and January 10 (Act 3) 1956. The original broadcast was not complete and Decca later recorded scenes (in order to cement Flagstad's contract with them) to complete the performance but never recorded the Act 1 interlude between Hagen's Watch and the scene between Brunnhilde and Waltraute so that is missing. For some reason the CD reissues have piqued interest in the performance, which, truthfully, isn't so good but here it is!!!The cast is as follows:

Brunnhilde - Kirsten Flagstad Siegfried - Set Svanholm Waltraute/ First Norn - Eva Gustavson Gunther - Waldemar Johnsen Hagen - Egil Nordsjo Alberich - Per Gronneberg Wellgunde/Second Norn - Karen Marie Flagstad Gutrune/Third Norn - Ingrid Bjoner Woglinde - Unni Bugge-Hanssen Flosshilde - Beate Asserson

Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra Norwegian State Rdio Orchestra Opera Chorus Conductor - Oivin Fjeldstad

These recordings are of nonprofessional quality that are in the public domain. The quality of these old opera recordings is not very good and they are meant for collectors and educational purposes only.
