Gleichsam ist es ein archäologisches Verfahren, die gesellschaftliche Aufarbeitung des Nationalsozialismus. Es werden Schichten abgetragen, die in zunehmendem Maße Umfang und Tiefe des Terrorregimes fassbar machen. Es wird aber nicht nur die Herrschaft des Nationalsozialismus aufgedeckt, sondern auch das größte Hindernis im Abtragen der Schichten selbst, nämlich das Weiterwirken von Strukturen des NS-Regimes in Personen, in dominanten Einstellungen zu gesellschaftlichen und politischen Ordnungssystemen.

Not being a lifelong Wagner devotee, I'm not sure if this particular performance has been released before or not, but I do know that it was included in a 2013 9-title release of Wagner operas recorded live from The Met from 1937 through 1954.

Why this performance? 3 words: Flagstad, Melchior, Huehn. I would add to that Leinsdorf, especially since the recording quality is so bad; his faster-than-the-norm tempi help cut through the densely muddy sound quality.
