Quotes
“I will proceed to proclaim the 1953 Bayreuth Festival Ring conducted by Clemens Krauss the best on records … Hotter in his prime as Wotan, Wolfgang Windgassen in his first Bayreuth Siegfried … and Astrid Varnay as a womanly, impassioned Brunnhilde. The rest of the cast, with minor exceptions, matches the competition point for point and easily surpasses all other Rings … The sound, remarkably solid and natural for a live recording of that era, favors the voices in a way that doesn’t slight the orchestra. But what lifts this Ring to preeminence is the conducting of Clemens Krauss … Tempos move forward purposefully, on the whole, but without slighting the music’s mystery and tragedy. And the intensely dramatic and ecstatic moments, those great outbursts to which Wagner rises with satisfying frequency, are delivered with blinding passion. Hear this Ring, and find out what this music, and Richard Wagner, are all about.” — John Rockwell, New York Times

“Hear this Ring, and find out what this music, and Richard Wagner, are all about.” — New York Times
