Catalogue Number: 10S045
Format: SACD hybrid
Description: Yes, the stand-alone Vorspiel zu einer grossen Oper is here and has been recorded before but the other 46 minutes are orchestral excerpts from operas which you’d have had to buy the entire opera (with all that nasty singing!) in order to hear. And they are substantial in length, from 6:46 to 15:19, so there’s plenty of more or less decadent late Romanticism to glut yourself with! Royal Swedish Orchestra; Lawrence Renes.
