Description
Reviewers were effusive in their praise for conductor Christian Thielemann's Ring Cycle at the Bayreuth Festival, inaugurated by Das Rheingold, captured live in 2008. Richard Wagner's masterpiece begins when the dwarf Alberich creates a magic ring from the gold that he stole from the Rhinemaidens, its awesome power setting into motion a story of deceit, destruction, and transfiguring love.

"The conductor's command of the score, every note of it, is extraordinary…. And not just the famous set pieces … [like] the gods' entrance into Valhalla in Das Rheingold … but also briefer interstitial instrumental passages, as when the gold is first revealed by the Rhinemaidens, or when Donner summons up thunderclouds…. Audio quality is superb, the two-channel sound remarkably redolent of the Festspielhaus's like-nowhere-else acoustic. Voices register as if inserted into Wagner's rich orchestral fabric."—Fanfare
