The opening piece is the gloriously conducted ‘Overture to The Flying Dutchman’. Kirsten Flagstad has a beautiful voice and sings with consummate skill in the’Wesendonck Lieder’ and ‘Liebestod'(from ‘Isolde’). – First Authorised Release.

SIR THOMAS BEECHAM, Bart., C.H.
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Kirsten Flagstad – Soprano.

The usual stunning Beecham conducting. Flagstad also speaks about her singing approach to Wagner – it should be required listening for all young singers today!

Released in collaboration with the Sir Thomas Beecham Trust in support of the Scholarship Fund.
