There seems to be no detail for this product. Which Furtwangler? Has anyone bought this?
EDIT : Oh wait, I could make out the low-quality backside cover. 1953 with Ferdinand Frantz as Wotan. Ludwig Suthaus as Siegfried. Martha Modl as Brunnhilde and Wolfgang Windgassen as Loge. Same recording with the 1953 EMI? Does anyone recommend this?

well folks, i have 4 Meisters now. Solti-both, Jochum and Barenboim.
so far it's 1. Jochum 2. Solti 1 3. Barenboim 4. Solti 2
it's real close though. Solti 2 could be 1 if not for thinly recorded Van Dam's Sachs. Very irritating.
2 to go still, Kuby and Sawally.
DA, come back.....................

If you want a Meistersinger with modern sound and decent singing then this worth a go. I just listened to it this week and thought it was pretty good and not many of the singers are big names.
I got this for £4 on Amazon UK on download. OMG bargain of the year already.
It's mono of course and it is live and therefore has stage noise but I think it is very serviceable and worth a punt for a small amount of money. Check out the other Amazon reviews.Schwarzkopf is possibly the best Eva I have heard and Karajan is bit more full throttle than he was later in life.
ordered Solti Parsifal. review ahead. can't wait.
also got Solti Lohengrin, great. up there with Kempe for sure. great sound.
