Bayreuth 2011: 27/07/11 - Lohengrin - Listen Live and on demand there after.

Written By The Wagnerian on Wednesday, 27 July 2011 | 2:16:00 pm

I have been trying to keep only to Bayreuth Broadcasts from BR-Klassik. The reasons for this are as follows:

  • The broadcasts are in a high bit-rate
  • The introductions are multilingual
  • The website is easy to negotiate for none German speakers.
The downside, of course, is that they do not broadcast all of the operas live - but sometimes leave a few days in between.

So, as people are keen to hear these as they are performed I believe I have selected the best places to hear each one as it broadcast. The selection criteria used were:
  • A good bit-rate
  • Ease of navigation for none native language speakers
  • Archive if available

Based on these criteria I would suggest:

Bartok Radio Click here to go directly to the relevant page. Bartok archives it's programs after they are broadcast (indeed, if you click on "calendar" in the top right hand corner and chose July 26th you can listen to yesterdays broadcast of Meistersinger or click the 25th for Mondays Tannhauser) so click play against Lohengrin at the correct time (15:55 CET) Alternatively, there are many other places to hear this - chose the one best for you
