This mighty 81-disc box, released for the centenary of Birgit Nilsson’s birth, is lavishly presented and features all the major roles she performed – 27 full-length operas including two full Wagner Ring cycles (with Solti and Böhm), as well as operas she recorded for other companies:Aida, La Fanciulla del West, Turandot (twice) and Der Freischütz. ‘her Wagner supremacy was recognised by all her colleagues, who regarded her with affection and respect, while audiences simply worshipped her as though she had come down to them from Valhalla.’ The Guardian.
