Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is an audio-only (i.e., with no video content) Blu-ray disc playable only on Blu-ray players.

The entire Karajan Ring in lossless 24-bit / 96kHz HD Audio on one Blu-ray Audio disc. Deluxe 400-page hardback book edition in a slipcase, with original cover art includes rare artist photos from the recording sessions and from the rehearsals for the live Salzburg productions. Karajan was concerned with beauty, lyricism and structure, and for his Ring cycle he assembled a world-class cast of singers who possessed instrumental tone and were able to deliver a vivid and clear performance.
