Notes & Reviews:
This is the eighth release in PentaTone's successful Wagner Edition and the second in this exciting Wagner Year. Previous releases in the edition have garnered rave reviews from major quarters: "... unquestionably the finest modern version on disc" (BBC Music Magazine). PentaTone's Wagner Edition is an unprecedented project, uniting the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin and acclaimed music director Marek Janowski with the greatest Wagner singers in the international opera scene today.

[Lang] undertakes this great journey employing all the tricks of her consummate vocal technique almost with ease...her contribution alone makes this CD worth adding to your library even if I could not recommend it - as I most certainly do - for the entire excellent ensemble performance.
The Guardian, 24th October 2013
No orchestral details in Walküre escape [Janowski] or the wonderfully vivid recording; the pacing is always judicious, and even if the performance doesn't reach the highest dramatic peaks, it's never boring...Lang's mezzo-ish Brünnhilde is easily the most interesting of the performances, but as a work in progress.
Recording information: Berlin Philharmonie (11/24/2012).
