    did anyone here the fresh air piece on Furtwangler recently? I’m curious whats the name of the music they played at the start of it? I can’t post the link but it’s easy to find I would appreciate it if anyone could reply with the answer.

    I have listened so far many excerpts from the Ring you uploaded. I can listen the orchestra remains quite untamed by the conductor. Furtwangler+italian orchestra=volcanic eruption. I enjoy their flaws 🙂
