Album Summary

>Wagner, Richard : Siegfried
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This is the ninth release in PentaTone's successful Wagner Edition and the third release of Der Ring des Nibelungen cycle.

BBC Music Magazine, February 2014
This is a lively and enjoyable performance of what Wagner called his 'heroic comedy'...listen to the short but dense Prelude and you'll hear many things that you won't have heard on any other recording, combined with terrific drive...In summary, the whole here is very much more than the sum of its parts - worth acquiring.

MusicWeb International, 16th December 2013
[Gould] seems to have the stamina and the power for the role...[Elsner] sings the part with an unfailing beauty of tone and excellent use of the text...That I still believe this Siegfried must be added to any self-respecting Wagner library is mainly because of Janowski's masterly conducting of his first-rate orchestra. There are many marvellous passages.
