Much thanks to Youtube poster: Bayreuthathon 

Youtube Description:

 The staging of this Meistersinger was by the young Wieland Wagner. The style is indeed very, very different compared to his post war productions.

Compared to the Meistersinger under Furtwängler this recording is technically even better. Great sound for the period.
