Product Description


A warm Easter wish to all members.

Here is an ORTF recording broadcast by the BBC at Easter in 1989. It is not quite complete. It was made on reel-to-reel tape (relatively very expensive, and for me, in short supply!), then transferred to DAT then to CD. No date of performance was given, nor the identity of Amfortas (!), so if any member could provide these details it would be most appreciated.

The recording (listen to the harps after "öffnet den Schrein") and cast are magnificent, and the recording is especially valuable for the wonderful jugendlich Tenor of Eberhard Büchner in the title role, fabulously secure in all registers.

Important Information!!!
USA Telephone (404) 200-4776 We sell only opera recordings. The recordings are sent to you in paper sleeves with no tray card or inserts, just the raw discs with printed labels. 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. Most of them are 30 or 40 years old, so they might be blurry, colors faded, and not sound very good, but they might not be available elsewhere. Please note that most of our recordings do not have tracks, they have 1 long track per disc.
