Notes & Reviews:

Marek Janowski's recording of Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen was the first ever digital recording of the opera. With sessions beginning in 1980, the complete set was not released until 1984. The cast for the four operas consisted of legendary Wagnerians and features the authoritative Wotan of Theo Adam, the fresh voiced Siegmund of Siegfried Jerusalem and Jessye Norman as Sieglinde, heard here at the peak of her early career. Rounding out the amazing cast are tenors René Kollo and Peter Schreier, and soprano Jeannine Altmeyer. This 2-CD set is the perfect introduction to the Ring and features selected musical highlights and all the most popular tunes.

New York Magazine
The full panoply of Wagner's orchestra positively blooms in this warm spacious acoustic environment and the Dresden Staatskapelle plays magnificently. Janowski never calls attention to himself as he presides over a sensitively proportioned musically perceptive and deeply felt performance.
