Notes and Editorial Reviews

Marek Janowski’s recording of Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen was the first ever digital recording of the opera. With sessions beginning in 1980, the complete set was not released until 1984. The cast for the four operas consisted of legendary Wagnerians and features the authoritative Wotan of Theo Adam, the fresh- voiced Siegmund of Siegfried Jerusalem and Jessye Norman as Sieglinde, heard here at the peak of her early career. Rounding out the amazing cast are tenors Rene Kollo and Peter Schreier, and soprano Jeannine Altmeyer. This 2-CD set is the perfect introduction to the Ring and features selected musical highlights and all the most popular tunes.
