This is Deccas landmark recording of Wagners Der Ring des Nibelungen conducted by Sir Georg Solti - the most celebrated classical recording in history.
The Greatest Recording of All Time
(Gramophone Magazine 1999 BBC Music Magazine 2011)
Grammy Award Edison Award Grand Prix Mondial du disque
Sir Georg Soltis recording of Wagners epic music-drama Der Ring des Nibelungen was a recording project on a scale without precedent and the first-ever studio recording of Wagners masterpiece.
Recorded between September 1958 and November 1965, it was masterminded by legendary producer John Culshaw and his technical team under the direction of chief engineer Gordon Parry. 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 unprecedented enthusiasm and rave reviews and which quickly won numerous international awards.
Decca proudly presents the definitive high bit-depth transfer of this legendary recording, carefully remastered in 2012.
The set features:
An anti-scratch matt finish 16CD + Bonus CD-Rom capbox box set containing Soltis immortal recording of Wagners Der Ring des Nibelungen as remastered in 2012.
An extensive 108-page booklet featuring written introductions to each opera by producer John Culshaw, synopses in English and German and many original session photographs.
Including Deryck Cookes An Introduction to Der Ring Des Nibelungen (CD 15-16).
PDF transcript is also available on the CD-Rom.
CD-Rom containing complete libretti in original German with English translation and French translation.
This careful and much-lauded remastering from 2012 has to-date only been issued in a limited edition 17CD + Blu-ray Audio package (which has almost sold out)and more recently in a Deluxe Blu-Ray Audio only edition.
So this is the first presentation of a CD-only edition of the 2012 remastering.
