The Bayreuth horn player rocks. Stephen Gould is a surprise and a pleasant one! Lovely tone, and he doesn't sound as if he's either shouting or about to fall apart. (Well, okay, he is shouting more than he ought to.) Think Alberto Remedios, my favorite Siegfried after Melchior.
Update, 10:42 a.m.: I missed Act I, and the Wanderer's music might be my favorite music in the whole Ring. Is there a rebroadcast?
Update, 12:57 p.m.: Dammit, I missed "Heil, dir, Sonne" while out getting lunch. Rebroadcast? Please?
OTOH, Watson sounds wobbly even singing softly, and did not trill where required. Sigh. Frida Leider, where are you when we need you?
