CDS 1033-2 Wilhelm Stenhammar (1871-1927): Tirfing (Scenes from the opera) Ingrid Tobiasson, mezzosoprano; Carina Morling, soprano; Jesper Taube, baritone; Royal Opera Orchestra conducted by Leif Segerstam


Excerpts from one of the truly great Swedish operas of its time, written in great Wagnerian style. The excerpts are from the huge monologues for mezzo. Few mezzos today, apart from Ingrid Tobiasson could keep the listener in such a tight grip!
