"Working with Georg Solti in the studio, as well as on stage, was extremely rewarding for me … I treasure our collaboration as one of the most stimulating in my whole career" (Birgit Nilsson)
3-CDs + Blu-ray Audio disc, in deluxe hardback presentation with "An introduction to the Opera and its Leitmotifs" and an essay by the recording's producer, John Culshaw, "Observations on the Characters, music and recording," illustrated with sketches of his 'imagined settings' for the recording.
