Notes & Reviews:

"If you want a spectacular modern digital recording of Wagnerian orchestral excerpts, this is hard to beat...magnificent account of Siegfried's Rhine Journey (splendid horn solo) is followed by a performance of the Funeral Music which has blazing drama and enormously expansive sound, with the brass biting venomously at Siegfried's betrayal. The Prelude and Liebestod from Tristan bring playing of great ardor from the strings, while - at a very spacious tempo - they find considerable intensity in the Parsifal Prelude. The Valkyries come in at a fine canter, nostrils flaring yet not driven too hard." - Penguin Guide (3 stars)
