There is a strong sense of a real performance here - the conducting is strong and the recording expands realistically. If you'd paid to see this you would have enjoyed it - and spent a great deal more than this incredible asking price. For the price of a tea and bun, what are you waiting for? I enjoyed John Tomlinson's characterful projection as Hagen, but the tonal quality has really gone. There are a lot more unmusical soloists than this and i wouldn't agree that this is two stars - 3.5 perhaps, but I played it straight through and enjoyed it. Not as good at Keilberth ( what could be?) or Karajan (very underrated now) but sound is important and to have modern recording which is not Bayreuth is well worth it. If the other parts were on at a £5 I wouldn't hesitate.

Format: Audio CD
I have great admiration for the recordings released by OEHMS, and treasure many of their past and recent releases. I could only applaud when I discovered that they were releasing not one but two live Ring cycles more or less simultaneously, though my wallet groaned as I fear I am a Flying Dutchman-like figure doomed forever to buy every Wagner complete opera set!
The Simone Young Hamburg set started famously-I gave a glowing review to the superb Rheingold-but I fear that it has been a steep downward slope since then, and the problem is pretty much the same as with the Thielemann Ring-superb even visionary conducting throughout the cycle, wonderful playing from the orchestra, all so beautifully recorded-and after Rheingold, with a few exceptions, singing which can only be described as depressing.
For the work in hand, this is a veteran's performance-all 3 major roles are sung by artists well past their best, and in some cases their best was never very good. I'm not going to single out Polaski, Franz or Tomlinson for specific shaming-let us just say that collectively, they are awful. Even Petra Lang, an artist I have so admired, lacks sheen in her voice, though she is not in the same lower league as the aforementioned trio.
Wolfgang Koch in his brief appearance as Alberich continues to delight-clearly the best in this role since Neidlinger, the highest praise I can bestow, and the Gibichungs are passable, but that is not enough to rescue the situation.
It really pains me to write this, for I have such admiration for Simone Young's inspired conducting-every tempo is so "right", every dramatic climax perfectly taken-and the Hamburg Orchestra covers itself in glory-it sounds so "right"-that word again!
