In our premiere Podcast, we will explore the various ways in which Wagner's last opera, Parsifal, has been performed since it first saw the light of day at the Bayreuth Festival of 1882. In this program we will focus on the way that conductors have approached this musical score. It is our hope that you will enjoy the musical numbers that we have selected for you. My sincere thanks goes out to my friend Keith Barnes who provided me with the rare musical excerpts that you will hear in this program. This program could not have been done without his help. Enjoy the show!
