Now this outstanding edition brings together a rich selection of Wagner's greatest overtures and preludes in a single handsome and affordable volume. Included are Overture to Rienzi, Overture to The Flying Dutchman, Overture to Tannh user, Preludes to Acts I and III of Lohengrin, Prelude and Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde, Overture to Die Meistersinger, andPrelude to Parsifal.
These well-known masterworks have been specially compiled for this unique edition from authoritative German editions, complete and unabridged.
