Parsifal Domingo/Baltsa/Grundheber/Salminen Madrid 2001

Parsifal Domingo/Baltsa/Grundheber/Salminen Madrid 2001

Agnes Baltsa turns 62 today (19th of November 1944 in the greek island of Lefkas) and this one, is her debut as Kundry in Madrid in 2001. Kundry is not really her role but i always enjoy her, singing new stuff. I ve been desperately looking for one of her Klytemnestra but havent located any till today...anybody that has an Elektra with Agnes and is willing to share????
ps. This is a complete recording of the premiere, not the abridged versions of the on-line stores.
Very good in-house recording
