Nina Stemme (soprano)


In June 2013 the Paris Opéra, under its music director Philippe Jordan, marked Wagner’s bicentenary with Der Ring des Nibelungen. It was the first time in more than 60 years that the company had performed the complete cycle under festival conditions. This programme of excerpts from The Ring, with Jordan conducting the Orchestra of the Paris Opéra, is rounded off with Brünnhilde’s Immolation Scene, sung by today’s leading Wagnerian dramatic soprano, Nina Stemme.

The Paris Opéra started building up to the 2013 Wagner bicentenary in 2010, when it launched a new production of Der Ring des Nibelungen, directed by Günter Krämer and conducted by the company’s music director, Philippe Jordan. The entire cycle of four music dramas was presented over 2010-2011, but in June 2013 – for the first time in more than 60 years – the Paris Opéra staged the Ring under festival conditions over a concentrated period.

Erato is marking the Wagner bicentenary with a spectacular programme of excerpts from the Ring. Philippe Jordan conducts the Orchestra of the Paris Opéra in instrumental music from all four music dramas in the cycle, including, of course, the thrilling Ride of the Valkyries and the magisterial Death of Siegfried; the programme reaches a worthy climax with the final scene of the entire work, Brünnhilde’s Immolation from Götterdämmerung, sung by the world’s reigning dramatic soprano, Nina Stemme.

When she sang the entire cycle in San Francisco in 2011, the New York Times wrote of her Immolation scene: “Ms Stemme took her singing to higher levels of burnished brilliance and expressive depth ... she was committed to the moment in every phrase she sang ...”. The Associated Press, meanwhile, felt that she “invited comparison with great past exponents of the role ... Stemme is a true dramatic soprano with a voice that is smooth and evenly produced throughout its wide range.”

Philippe Jordan, who made his debut (with Parsifal) at the Bayreuth Festival in 2012, spoke about his experience of conducting the Ring in an interview on the Paris Opéra’s website.

“It seems to me that if there is one work on which our views can evolve, then it is the Ring. When I look back on the very first cycle I conducted in Zurich, I have the impression that it was another opera. When you approach the Ring for the first time, you try to serve each work separately ... But that leads to an inevitable question when, having already circumnavigated the Ring, you once again face the prologue [to Das Rheingold]... Should one look to rediscover the purity and innocence of Das Rheingold, or, having made one’s way through the three other dramas, is it better to look for a unity in the cycle and bring out the sound of Götterdämmerung that is already there in the prologue?”

“the results are predictably front-rank. Jordan is one of our finest Wagner conductors today - he knows how it goes, how fast it should go and how to balance it...And Stemme...is in superb voice, steely and passionate by turns.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2014

Celebrating the 200th Anniversary of Wagner in 2013, David Zinman conducts the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich performing Scenes and Orchestral Pieces from “The Flying Dutchman” and “The Ring of the Nibelung”.

David Zinman is one of the world’s finest, most respected conductors, whose passion for music, dedication to furthering careers of young musicians and as an orchestral builder makes ‘music a better world’.

This CD features famous international Wagner baritone Egils Silins who can be heard as “Dutchman” and as “Wotan”.

Zinman has extended his contract with the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich until 2014, where, since 1995 as conductor and music director, he has raised the standard of the orchestra to an international level.

Zinman’s previous recordings on Sony have been received with superb critical acclaim.

In January 2006, David Zinman, received the prestigious Theodore Thomas Award, presented by the Conductors Guild in New York’s Roosevelt Hotel. The award is presented biannually to a conductor, in recognition of outstanding achievement and extraordinary service to one’s colleagues in advancing the art and science of conducting, reflecting honour on the profession.

“It's superbly done. Zinman's speeds are on the relaxed side, but there's wonderful transparency in the playing, far removed from the thick textures favoured by some interpreters. A thrilling account of Siegfried's Rhine Journey is the high point.” The Guardian, 4th July 2013 ****

“the poetic grandeur David Zinman brings to his acclaimed Mahler is equally evident here, with tempos slow enough to please Klemperer.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2013 ****

“[Silins] has a powerful voice that has a colour and tone that are absolutely right for Wagner...[he] sings Wotan's Farewell from Die Walkure with great presence and steely resolve where it's called for, but he is not afraid to produce real tenderness in places.” International Record Review, September 2013

“all Zinman's success in the German repertoire from Beethoven to Strauss breeds period-conscious, exciting Wagner from him and his players, never over-bloated to a later-in-the-century sound.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2013
