Details: This is one of the all-time great recordings of Parsifal.  André Cluytens leads the La Scala orchestra in a sweeping and beautiful performance.   This is also the only recording of Parsifal featuring Rita Gorr as Kundry, which she sings fearlessly.  Parsifal was the perfect role for Sando Konya.  He combines purity and strength and colors the words beautifully.  Boris Christoff is booming as Gurnemanz.  If you recognize a familiar voice among the flower-girls, it's a young Montserrat Caballé, as this was her debut at La Scala.
