Notes & Reviews:

Richard Wagner's tetralogy 'The Ring of the Nibelung' remains, quite simply, one of the largest-scale works of art ever conceived. With a total performance time of at least fourteen hours over four nights, it was a work so massive in scope he built his own theater in Bayreuth dedicated entirely to performances of it! With this 14-CD complete cycle, all of the required elements are in attendance. Bernard Haitink leads the Symphonie-orchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks and a remarkable cast, including Peter Seiffert, Cheryl Studer, Siegfried Jerusalem, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Eva Marton and more!

Penguin Guide
Strong and purposeful, [Haitink] takes a thoughtful view which in each music-drama nevertheless builds up unerringly in tension and power, with the beauty of Wagner's orchestration consistently brought out.
