Video showing Vienna Horns in F and Wagner Tuben, they are correctly called Wagner TUBEN (TUBE singular) (as in TUBES) and not TUBAS actually. Time and the need for a translation has changed that to tubas, just so you know (doubting Thomas's please look in the score). This is here to lament the passing of a style of playing that is so rare to encounter these days - sheer uninhibited passionate unbridled and raw playing which has today been replaced by something more sterile and exact. I will blame conductors any day for wanting everything to sound the way a modern recording does. This is from the DECCA DVD "The Golden Ring" which is a Humphrey Burton documentary made during the recording of Götterdämmerung for the Solti Ring Cycle. Buy it from Amazon as well as the CDs with the definitive Siegfriedruf played by Roland Berger aged 21.
