With several superb recordings of Wagner’s epoch-making masterpiece in the catalogue, it seems presumptuous for Naxos to enter the fray with a second-rank company such as the Royal Swedish Opera. Surprisingly, though, this recording can hold its head high in exalted company, and of course it’s at a bargain price. If you were judging this recording only on the soloists (the excellent German soprano Hedwig Fassbender and the lacklustre Wolfgang Millgram), it wouldn’t be in the running. But what lifts it above average is the wonderful playing of the Swedish Opera Orchestra.

Richard WAGNER (1813-1883) Opera Choruses The Mastersingers of Nuremberg Finale (excerpts) (Act 3). (David: Goran Eliasson, ten) The Flying Dutchman Chorus of Norwegian Sailors and Girls (Act 3). (Steersman: Göran Eliasson, ten) Tannhäuser Procession into the Hall of Song (Act 2, Scene 4) Lohengrin Bridal Procession (Act 2, Scene 4) Rienzi The Messengers of Peace (Act 2). (Rienzi: Lars Cleveman, ten; Messenger  . Whilst Leif Segerstam is no Solti, or even Varviso, he has a feel for the Wagnerian idiom. Occasionally he lingers when I feel a more forward thrust would be present in a recording of the complete work. This can make the collection seem a little studio bound.
