New Wagner Box Set: "The Other Wagner"

Written By The Wagnerian on Sunday, 11 November 2012 | 8:36:00 am

The Wagner boxsets just keep coming and the newest one is the aptly titled "The Other Wagner" - just released by EMI. In a break from the usual selection of Wagner's dramas, this 4 CD boxset concentrates on his orchestral, lieder and piano music output - and its not that bad from the very brief listen we have managed so far. You can pick-up a copy for around £8 pound if you look around

We supply as much information as we can below. No easy thing considering how poorly EMI tends to press release its classical output.  And should you have Spotify, you can listen to the entire set below.  At the very least this will provide you with a full track listing.
