Notes & Reviews:
Completed in Wahnfried on November 21, 1874. I say nothing further!!" With these words written at the bottom of his Götterdämmerung score, Wagner thus finished his composition of the entire Ring Cycle. The Frankfurt Opera also concluded Vera Nemirova's highly praised production of the work in January, thus raising the bar for the coming Wagner year 2013.
Along with Weigle's non-intrusive, clear-as-a-bell story-telling and the stunning playing of the Frankfurt Opera, this set is a winner. It's among the most committed sets around. The sonics are spectacular... it should be proud to be in the running.
