WAGNER: Der Ring des Nibelungen (complete cycle)

Unavailable for several years, this classic complete Ring recording now returns triumphantly to the catalog at a super-budget price!

Ring groupies and enthusiasts, who are a very active and vocal subset of opera lovers, argue vigorously over which are the best complete recordings of all time. Most will agree that this is one of the finest ever, and many rate it the best of all! Wagner performances recorded in Wagner's own theater in Bayreuth, Germany always have a special appeal due to the unique acoustics, which Wagner took into account when composing. His music dramas just seem to sound better there than anywhere else.

This recording caused a commotion when it came out in 1953 due to its palpable excitement in comparison to the relative sedateness of previous recorded performances. Clemens Krauss was one of the great Wagner conductors (and a personal friend of Richard Strauss), but what really sets this recording apart is the cast.

Listener Comments
It would be interesting to see this recording issued in the SACD format. No attempts at making it sound like stereo, just leaving it as a Mono recording. So far this is one of the best performances of the "Ring Cycle" I have yet to hear. The Monoual Sound is good and the mastering of this recording does the performance justice. As for the price it is hard to beat!! I just hope that the online libretto will be available as a PDF to download, and not just an online one. I also find it interesting that the Testament set is from Two years after this one, is in Stereo, and costs a whole lot more!! Just like the Two big time ring cycles from Decca and DGG who charge way too much for theirs. This Opera d Oro set is a wonderful bargain! As for "Ring Cycles" this is the one to get!!.
