Some reviewers have claimed Domingo’s Lohengrin has a faint Spanish accent.
I find that Sir Georg Solti’s Wagner interpretations got mellower and more careful as he got older, with a gentler approach. His 1985 Lohengrin is perfectly conducted.
A decade separates this Lohengrin from Sir Georg’s last Wagner recordings then (Meistersinger and Fliegende, 1975 and 1976 respectively). The least we can say is that in the interval Sir Georg considerably changed his approach to Wagner conducting. In the 40s, the 50s, the 60s and the 70s he was extremely energetic with strong dynamics, contrast, but first and foremost an intuitive sense of drama – never did I have a better impression of a story being told than by Sir Georg’s beautiful readings of most Wagner operas (The Wiener Philharmoniker played in most cases, except the Chicago SO for Fliegende and the remake of Meistersinger).
