About this product
- DescriptionDisplays dedication to Wagner's musical requirements and to putting into practice his own belief that a stereo recording could create a 'theatre of the mind. This book tells the story of how the recording evolved, and how it frequently almost came to grief.
- Author BiographyJohn Culshaw joined Decca after the war as a studio assistant and went on to become recording manager and then musical director. He pioneered the use of stereo for recording opera, his aim being to involve the listener in the drama and so make the opera come alive. He produced over twenty operas after the advent of stereo. John Culshaw was working on the last chapters of his autobiography, Putting the Record Straight, when he died, in 1980, from a rare form of hepatitis.
