Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, Vienna State Opera Chorus, Sir Georg Solti

Sir Georg Solti’s Wagner’s epic music-drama Der Ring des Nibelungen was the first-ever studio recording of Wagner’s masterpiece on an unprecedented recording scale without precedent. Masterminded by legendary producer John Culshaw and his technical team under the direction of chief engineer Gordon Parry between 1958-1965, this massive undertaking set new standards in both opera recording and the possibilities of the effective and imaginative use of stereo.

The combination of Sir Georg Solti and the Vienna Philharmonic with an international cast of the greatest Wagnerian singers available resulted in a recording which was greeted with exceptional enthusiasm and rave reviews and which quickly won numerous international awards. This edition offers something that is the supreme sound experience of what is generally acknowledged to be the greatest version of Wagner’s supreme masterpiece.

Containing Wagner’s libretti, this audiophile edition offers something that is the supreme sound experience of what is generally acknowledged to be the greatest version of Wagner’s supreme masterpiece.
