A touch of Bayreuth in Paris: Gatti conducts Parsifal (2)

The concert performance of Parsifal that I blogged about a few days ago has been recorded and is now available on Arte Live Web for free (see below).

 Modulo Gurnemanz the cast is very good and somewhat peculiar [Detlef Roth, in particular, is on the lighter side of your usual Amfortas but he manages to absorb the role in his own way resulting in a refreshing interpretation], and Daniele Gatti again delivers a superb version of what I believe is the greatest opera of all times.

N.B. he conducts the entire Parsifal without the score.

Video embedded below. Enjoy!

or on Arte Live Web.
