Notes & Reviews:
In 2015, Sony Classical reissued Die Walküre and Siegfried from the first digital recording of the Ring. "It has stood the test of time remarkably well", observed ClassicsToday.com when the complete set, originally released in 1983, was last reissued. "The Staatskapelle Dresden plays spotlessly for Marek Janowski ... An excellent 'Ring' experience." Now the remaining two music dramas from this acclaimed cycle are again available separately. Das Rheingold is dominated by Siegfried Nimsgern's vibrant, articulate Alberich, Peter Schreier's wonderfully vital, strikingly intelligent and articulate Loge and Theo Adam's experienced Wotan. But Fricka, the Giants and Rhinemaidens are all well cast, and the whole performance grips one's attention from start to finish."
