Movie Reviews

Fascinating release
B. Cathey | Wendell, NC United States | 03/30/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This release includes a fascinating video on the life and artistry of Max Lorenz, plus a CD of excerpts of him singing in a Buenos Aires (Teatro Colon) SIEGRIED from 1938 (under Erich Kleiber), never before released on CD, to my knowledge. Interviews with such singers as Dietrich Fiescher-Dieskau and stunning clips of Lorenz at Bayreuth are included. Highly recommended for a better understanding of a significant, but often misunderstood, artist."
Hitler's Favorite Tenor
Ronald F. Swanger | Palm Coast, FL USA | 05/21/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A remarkable documentary of this unusually fine Wagnerian tenor with tasty insights into the Bayreuth Festival of the War Years, including some rare footage of performances and a brief appearance by Winifred Wagner herself!!"
