Richard Wagner: Parsifal.

This was the case with the Great Hans Knappertsbusch and Wagner's "Parsifal". His name is synonymous with this work, and likely always will be. This is the first performance at Bayreuth after the war, and it's a sure bet that everyone was being very careful, and, rightly, probably was very nervous as to just what the re-opening of the Festspielhouse would bring. I am sure everyone was probably walking on "eggs" people still flocked to see and hear Wagner's works presented that year, 1951.

Hans Knappertsbusch (12 March 1888 – 25 October 1965) was a German conductor, best known for his performances of the music of Richard Wagner, Anton Bruckner and Richard Strauss as well as his unique public persona and conducting style. To this day, his interpretations of the works of Wagner, especially Parsifal, are regarded by many as among the best of the 20th century.

Hans Knappertsbusch (1888-1965) had a special affinity for Wagner-a connection to the source. In the early years of the last century, he was an assistant to the composer’s son Siegfried and a pupil of Hans Richter, the conductor in the pit for the first performance of the complete Ring cycle in 1876. The veteran conductor collaborated with Richard Wagner’s grandson Wieland in the visually spare production designed by the young director for the Festival’s reopening after the Second World War. The Knappertsbusch Parsifal discography is staggering. Kna, as he was affectionately known, had a reputation for slow tempos for his Parsifals and, indeed, this one is longer than most.

Parsifal: Parsifal, music drama in three acts by German composer Richard Wagner, with a German libretto by the composer. The work was first performed at Bayreuth, Bavaria, Germany, on July 26, 1882, not long before Wagner’s death, on February 13, 1883. The Transformation Music from Act I and the Good Friday. In its first summer there Parsifal was performed 16 times (July 26 through August 29, 1882).
