Notes and Editorial Reviews

"In his Ring, Wagner constructed an entire universe in sound. In terms of dramatic vision and orchestral realization, James Levine's recreation of that world stands equal to anyone's, and nowhere more so than in this Siegfried. A triumph."

--Richard Lehnert, Stereophile [7/1992]
