TITLE added to MP3 cart. René Pape & Staatskapelle Berlin & Daniel Barenboim. Exclusive Prime pricing. I love Wagner, and I love Rene Pape, so this was a no brainer purchase. I do agree that he is a lot more calm or subtle in his interpretations than the legends, but after listening to the cd with the booklet (following with the words), I popped it into my car, and I could hear every word clearly on a long drive as he sang which helped with conveying the drama (I speak German).
René Pape Staatskapelle Berlin Daniel Barenboim. René Pape in conversation with Jürgen Kesting. But he was more of a bass-baritone, and I’m a basso cantante, and so he could sing parts like the Dutchman, Amfortas and Scarpia, which because of my vocal type I probably will never perform on stage. As far as variety of repertoire is concerned, however, my path could well resemble London’s. Among the few singers who worked with Wagner and also made recordings was Lilli Lehmann.
René Pape was born in Dresden, then part of East Germany. His mother is a hairdresser and his father a chef. His parents divorced when he was two years old and he sometimes lived with his grandmother, who opened the way for his interest in music. René Pape's King Marke is a magnificent and dignified performance, sung with the utmost compassion and with an enviable richness and range of bass tone, wrote Michael Kennedy in the Sunday Telegraph on 25 May 2003. As Heinrich, René Pape displayed what must be the most sumptuous operatic bass in the world, wrote Rupert Christiansen in the Daily Telegraph on 5 June 2003. Pape was honored on 27 October 2010 by the Metropolitan Opera Guild as part of its Met Mastersingers series.

On this album of operatic scenes and arias by Wagner, bass René Pape shows himself to be very much in the league of Barenboim and Domingo. Perhaps most importantly, he has the commanding personality that's a bottom-line necessity in making the composer's mythic characters believable and sympathetic even in their moral complexity. Barenboim, a veteran Wagner conductor, brings masterful insight to these scenes; he leads Staatskapelle Berlin in performances that are beautifully paced, and their details shine with clarity even through the composer's sometimes dense orchestration. Deutsche Grammophon's sound is clean and warmly ambient.
Daniel Barenboim in the pit and René Pape as a superb Gurnemanz gave the music, singing and staging a thrilling coherence. There was effortless simplicity in the journey to the Grail, where space becomes time, and Titurel entered and exited in a dual state: in a coffin, yet also tall and commanding in a black leather coat. The Grail itself, a chalice filled with holy water and blood from the wound of Amfortas, provided glorious renewal as the knights drank from it - a sort of reverse transubstantiation. In Act III emotions were palpable
