For those who don’t have time to sit down and listen to an entire Wagner opera, here is a newish release from Naxos:

“Bleeding Chunks of Wagner” – referring the the famous quote of Sir Donald Tovey in 1935 about excerpts of opera taken out of their musical context.  This CD (while CD’s are still being released) or download offers “highlights” of Wagner’s greatest music.

The cover photo says it all!
