Album Summary

>Wagner, Richard : Die Walküre
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

When Zubin Mehta took over the position of Bavarian General Music Director in 1998, heralding a new era in the history of Germany's most venerable opera orchestra, this first cyclic performance of the Ring was a triumph for both the maestro and his musicians. The highly individual sound of the Bavarian State Orchestra and Mehta's energetic, taut and highly emotional conducting style meld within the musical language of "The Valkyrie" to create a new interpretation that spans an arc between the great conductors of decades past to the modern style of today.
