More Wagner

As promised, here is more Wagner, the winner of the poll. This is Wagner's popular opera, Die Walkure (The Valkyrie) made famous by the pictured Apocalypse Now scene. This opera premiered in 1870 as the second part of his massive Ring cycle of operas, which is based on old Germanic characters and legends. Unlike Beethoven, one Wagner piece is more than enough for a post; Die Walkure requires four discs to hold it.

Die Walkure: Act I

Act II, Part I (Disc II)

Act II part II (Disc III)

Act III (Disc IV)

Vienna Phil., Georg Solti

Birgit Nilsson as Brunnhilde

Thanks, Sam! A great Opera! Will the other parts be here in the future or not? I was kinda hoping for the entire tetralogy when I saw who won the poll, but I guess that would make an immense undertaking...

Thanks a lot. Wagner seems not so easy to find on the WWW. I´m happy he won.
"The rest is following" sounds promising to me. Can´t wait for the "tons of stuff from the winner of this poll." ;-)

Is that the ex Mrs Stallone as Brunnhilde? Just wondered.

Merci pour cette magnifique Walkyrie et pour l'utilisateur anonyme qui nous offre le crépuscule des Dieux.
Pour compléter la tétralogie, quelqu'un a t-il l'Or du Rhin et Siegfried
