Toscanini, Helen Traubel, Lauritz Melchior - Great Scenes From Wagner: Götterdämmerung album
Lauritz Melchior was the first of the great Wagnerian heldentenors (heroic tenors) to sing on records, and he was the first operatic tenor to sing on radio. His recorded legacy is considered a benchmark for all subsequent Siegfrieds and Tristans. One can only imagine what a legacy was lost when he . .
My personal top 10 list of the best moments of Wagner's Der Ring Des Nibelungen. At number 9 is the climactic duet between Siegfried and Brünnhilde before the former embarks on his Rhein journey. The recording is Herbert Von Karajan's Ring, Götterdämmerung, recorded in 1966-70.
Originally released 1968 Recording from NBC broadcast february 1941 in Carnegie Hall.

Melchior begins by singing of his dilemma. His strong, heroic voice is well displayed. When he sings of his father, the poignancy and plaintiveness of his voice is clear with his ringing "Walse. This is a powerful start to the great duet. Traubel (as Sieglinde) responds with her stirring "Der Manner Sippe," in which she describes her state and the visit of s stranger who left a sword. Many had tried to wrest it free, but had failed. Powerful stuff; Wagner at his best in one of the great scenes from all of opera. There are also two other scenes on this CD, the dawn in "Gotterdammerung" through Siegfried's Rhine Journey; the Immolation scene at the conclusion of the opera (and the entire "Ring"). This is well worth acquiring for its classic Wagnerian "Ring" works.
