Notes & Reviews:

Testament's highly acclaimed release of the legendary 1955 stereo recordings of the Ring made by Decca at Bayreuth featured the first of two cycles of performances conducted by Joseph Keilberth and staged by the Festival's co-director Wieland Wagner. Partly for security, partly out of interest, Decca's engineers, under Peter Andry, also recorded the second cycle, from which this first-ever release of Gotterdammerung is drawn. It provides listeners a chance not only to hear a different musical perspective but also to appreciate the amazing depth of Bayreuth's casting resources. For these performances Martha Modl took over as Brunnhilde while Hans Hotter, the production's Wotan/Wanderer from 1952, took on the role of Gunther.
