These Wagner highlights from Karajan include classic performances of the Meistersinger, Tannhäuser and Flying Dutchman Overtures. Impeccably timed, with a fierce cutting edge, the playing is relentlessly noble and all-conquering. But, as a fine Prelude and Liebestod from Tristan and the Tannhäuser Bacchanal suggest, it is also music-making that can be lyrically intense and sensually languorous.Ates Orga
