I'm a music fan but not a Classical music buff and unfamiliar with wagners work, but when I heard the overture "Vorspiel das Rheingold" I was instantly attracted to the piece.

Not being sure I could get on with the full operas, this disc had the answer. Highlights of the instrumental pieces of the opera on one disc. Super Audio Compact Disc sealed the deal. The best high resolution DSD sound quality to show off the HI FI. I would not presume to review Wagners work, but for someone wanting to dip their toes in the (Wagner)water, this is disc a great disc to start.

I have lately been imbibing the music of Wagner's Ring, hearing the Goodall Ring (sung in English) in small chunks at a time over the last three months and hearing several orchestral CDs of the Ring. I have had the chance to hear the individual concert arrangements that Herman Zumpe prepared during Wagner's lifetime (available on countless recordings), and also the Ring synthesis that Maazel did with the Berliners. As of now, I only know of the Maazel and de Vlieger suites, and also Friedmann Dressler's 90-minute Symphonic Ring. Of these various CD-length Ring condensations, I find that I like the de Vlieger version better. The different sections flow smoothly into each other and the narrative strands are brought out more clearly here. As such this is far from an abomination or a travesty of Wagner's music. Rather, I find that it presents the most important excerpts without all the boring bits in between.

At this date I only know of three versions of De Vlieger's jumbo-sized Ring suite. This Chandos version with Neeme Järvi and the Scottish National Orchestra is the second, made some 15 years after the first recording by its dedicatee Edo de Waart. At this writing BIS recently released a third recording from Lawrence Renes and the Royal Swedish Opera Orchestra. I admit that I'm not a Wagnerian and as such my knowledge of his music may be limited. However, Jarvi and his orchestra offer a full-bodied and dramatic performance of this suits and the orchestra is on excellent form. I find that I'm fonder of Jarvi's propulsive conducting that gives thrust to the narrative than of the conducting of others who have done this arrangement.

Järvi takes an hour in his version, as opposed to 67 minutes of De Waart or 65 for Renes.

Don't worry about compatability problems with this disc. If you do not have a SACD player, it will play on the standard CD layer perfectly well. The obvious comparison is with the Telarc CD conducted by Maazel-The Ring Without Words. Both are very fine sounding discs, and it is well worth having both. The Jarvi arrangement is more wayward than the Maazel version which sticks closer to the original. If I were to choose just one, I would go for the Telarc, and it is half the price of the Chandos disc. However, if you have a SACD stup, you would benefit from the Chandos disc.
