Der Fliegende Hollander - Hotter, Ursuleac, Hann, Ostertag. Bayreuth  1944
The historic 1944 concert performance showing why Hotter was considered the finest Dutchman of all times. His performance sets the standard, Ursuleac is a compelling Senta and the remainder of the cast solid. Clemens Krauss' conducting shows how Wagner is supposed to be played and his performance is magnificent. This is still the finest recording of this opera. It has been totally remastered and properly pitched to maximize the performance. The sound is good.
