Of the two offerings on Phillips which is considered the best? I used
to have one on lp, the cover of which was primarily in blacks and
blues. Which cd issue corresponds to that set?
I think there's just one for Philips, the 1962 recording.
There are three issues that I know of, the expensive first one, the
"Philips 50" (which I own) and the Decca Originals, which I suspect
is pretty similar to the Philips 50. Stage noise or not, I'm
perfectly content with the one I have.
There are other Kna Parsifals, all in mono AFAIK. A 1951 Bayreuth had
various LP issues on London/Decca and made it to CD on Teldec and Naxos.
Then there's Kna's last Parsifal from 1964, with Vickers, expensive on
Orfeo. I believe that's not all.
