no longer for sale

"Thereís no question that these performances must rank among the most gripping in the catalogue. Tantalisingly brief chunks that make one regret all the more that Reiner never made a studio recording of a complete Wagner opera. Not only is the playing stunningly disciplined in execution, but Reiner manages to draw an infinite range of colours from the orchestra. Sound quality in the earlier RCA Victor Orchestra sessions is more variable, but it does not detract in any way from the obvious attractions of this release." - Erik Levi, BBC Music Magazine .
