In January 1956 Norwegian Radio broadcast an almost complete performance of Gotterdammerung starring Kirsten Flagstad and Set Svanholm, and conducted by oivin Fjeldstad. Despite opportunities to re-record the work in Vienna, Flagstad was insistent that this performance be released. Most of the missing sections were then recorded, and the resultant LP was the first (almost complete) commercial recording of the work on disc. Flagstad, the great Wagnerian, is in resplendent voice and Svanholm proves a worthy partner. This elusive set remains a milestone in Wagner performance.
