Notes & Reviews:

This 1950 performance is the only live complete recording of The Ring conducted by the legendary Wilhelm Furtwangler. Although it has been available on several labels in the past, this is its first appearance at budget price. At last, this "crucial, living document," as opera critic Robert Levine called it, has been made affordable by Opera d'Oro.
