Notes and Editorial Reviews

OehmsClassics is proud to finally be issuing the Frankfurt Ring as a DVD. A great deal has been written about the audio release and it has nearly always been stated that one should not only hear the complete works, but also see them. Now the time has come: on a total of 8 DVDs, the complete Ring can be heard AND seen. There is an extremely interesting and exciting “Making Of ” to The Rhinegold with elucidations by the producer, Vera Nemirova, and the conductor, Sebastian Weigle. An obligatory DVD set for the Wagner Year 2013!
