Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"This recording of Das Rheingold, though, is entirely successful, and while it may not displace the Solti or Boulez or Levine versions, it deserves a place beside them -- this is one of the most viscerally propulsive Rheingolds on disc... The singers, without exception, are topnotch, and as an ensemble, they create a remarkably urgent sense of drama. Christopher Doig is outstanding as Loge, creating a character whose wiliness is rooted in power. John Wegner's Alberich is a genuine menace, someone who could reasonably stand up to Wotan and threaten him; his portrayal reveals complexities in the dwarf's character that are frequently lost in caricature. As Wotan, John Brocheler is appropriately commanding... Anyone who loves Rheingold would do well to check out this version, for the fresh musical and dramatic insights the performers bring to it." -All Music
