Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
To my ears, Janowski's conducting style with Wagner is best described as "brisk and brusque", and all too frequently "perfunctory". He seems to want to get through it as quickly as possible and with as little expression. Ernest Newman opined, and many have reiterated that in the Ring tempo is not important, it is "pulse" that counts, and I fully concur with this view. The Ring can emerge as a triumph in the hands of Knappertsbusch or equally well under Bohm, but in hands of Janowski I generally find that there is a lack of pulse and that the patient has died!
I am happy to advise that on this occasion, the patient is alive and well, though not without minor complications on the road to recovery!
The set is presented in the attractive uniform Pentatone packaging, on 3CDs only, and with a cast drawn from the pool (more like a puddle) of front rank performers of Wagner in the current era, which last is sadly not saying much. More of this anon.

Janowski sets a tempo which is on the faster side, but not unduly so, and the dark smoky opening of the work is wonderfully captured and enunciated, with the Dragon Motif leaping out at one with real menace. Indeed, Janowski structures the whole of the first two acts uncommonly well, with some extended passages rivalling the very best! He shapes the Forest Murmurs beautifully, with the "Love of Woman" motif which he glossed over so irritatingly in Loge's Narration in Rheingold here played with a chamber like delicacy, with string portamento and a translucent beauty.
