Summary
  • "TANNHÄUSER - THE PARIS EDITION: Though popularity for Wagner's Tannhäuser in its original Dresden (1845) version spread rapidly, Wagner frequently felt drawn to make minor alterations to the score. An Imperial command to produce it in Paris in 1861 prompted the more substantial revisions which distinguish the Paris version from the Dresden and despite the fact that the first three performances in Paris were such an unmitigated disaster that Wagner withdrew both the opera and himself, he clearly felt that the new version was preferable to the old, once it had been restored to German. From the outset of Decca's recording project with Solti there was no doubt that this would be the version used, though under the umbrella-title of 'Paris version' several choices still have to be made. It was felt quite simply that Tannhäuser becomes an even greater work by virtue of the revisions."--Amazon.com
  • "Deluxe Hardback Edition with CD + libretti + Blu-ray Audio! ... new 'quadraphonic' recording techniques developed in the late 1960s allowed engineers to capture a greater spatial ambience. In the autumn of 1969, quietly and behind the scenes, Decca began to experiment with quadraphonic sound, first in its Hampstead studios, and the next spring in the Sofiensaal recording the Vienna Philharmonic ... Today, Blu-ray Audio allows us to hear for the first-time producer Ray Minshull's original vision and re-present in 'Surround Sound' Decca's accomplishments through the High Fidelity Pure Audio 5.1 surround mix in this reissue. Georg Solti's readings of Wagner's great operas are among the most thrilling experiences on record. The evenness and strength of the cast is balanced with the brilliance of the Wiener Philharmoniker and recorded with the renowned Decca clarity and richness."--Amazon.com
