Decca's landmark recording of Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen is the most celebrated classical recording in history. The combination of Sir Georg Solti and the Vienna Philharmonic with an international cast of the greatest Wagnerian singers resulted in the definitive recording. Now presented in a 17 disc box set in the definitive high bitdepth transfer, the set includes Deryck Cooke's 'An Introduction to Der Ring Des Nibelungen' (CD 15-16) and a CDRom of the complete libretto.
