Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide
This new Gotterdammerung is... as good as any post-Karajan Gotterdammerung I know: more natural than Barenboim, more individual that De Billy, more alive and lyrical than Boulez, and more dramatic and concentrated... Lang is an outstanding Waltraute. Her narration, full of color and expression... is one of the high points of the set... The woodwinds and horns are especially good.

MusicWeb International
Every member of the cast has something impressive to bring to this production. Christian Franz is an expressive and believable Siegfried. Deborah Polaski is similarly secure in her pitching as Brnnnhilde. I found her performance very endearing, her natural tone, even at the top, making her the focus of attention in all the scenes she sings. This allows the Immolation Scene to be all the more definitive, with the audience really feeling Brnnnhilde's transcending compassion. The small role of Waltraute is given a similarly endearing reading by Petra Lang.

ClassicsToday.com
The Waltraute/Brünnhilde scene is the most humanly interactive I've ever heard, and the summoning of the Vassals, with the Hamburg Chorus at its best, is as rousing as anyone might want. The sonics are superb.
