5.0 out of 5 stars Great!!!!!!!!!!!!, 5 Aug. 2013
This Meister is extraordinary.
Great recording and great singing.
The singers are outstanding and the conducting as well.
Adam is MUCH better here than with Karajan.
And the whole thing involves you from beginning to end.
And Acts 1 and 2 are COMPLETE on their own disc.
wooooohoooooo!
If you love Meister, bite the bullet and get this.

3.0 out of 5 stars DON'T get this......................, 27 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Parsifal (Audio CD)
the sound is such that you're either straining to hear it or running to turn down the volume. bad engineering.
it goes from whisper soft to waaaaaaaaay too loud.

there i've warned you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Needs a better Sachs but............................, 26 Jan. 2012
Other than having a Sachs with a voice thats a tad too high, this is an excellent
Meistersinger.
Jess Thomas is just awesome and the rest of the cast is fine as well.
Very good stereo sound.

3.0 out of 5 stars High hopes, but disappointed.............................., 26 Jan. 2012
1. For an audiophile cd the sound is surprisingly thin.
2. Janowski goes for a chamber like approach and I like it grander.
3. He uses faster tempi than I like.
4. Sachs is sung very well,maybe the best of all recordings, I just feel his final monologue is slightly too fast.
5. Walther is very good, not as good as Hepner, but good.

6. THIS IS THE WORST packaging of any cd you could buy. The cds are in cardboard sleeves attached to the front cover, and the huge, beautiful booklet is GLUED TO THE BINDING. so it peels off when you decide to look at it. UNBELIEVABLE!!!

If you want a light fairly quick and lively Meistersinger that's well sung here it is.
But remember, the booklet WILL fall out.

COME ON PENTATONE--DECENT PACKAGING. HUH???

couldn't decide 3 or 4 stars. 3 for bad conducting and bad packaging.

i've heard all the stereo Meisters out there and my top 4 are 1. Solti's first with Norman Bailey as Sach's, 2 and 3 are tied between Sawallisch and Jochum. 4.Barenboim has a good Sachs and great sound. Jochum has great conducting and a gorgeous sounding Domingo.

All the others have miscast,thin voiced,gruff Sachs imh

Kubelik-overly fast tempi and gruff Sachs and subpar recording, but has great moments.
Solti 2 thin voiced Sachs.
Karajan-thin voiced Sachs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Meister there is................., 23 Jan. 2012
Don't believe all the hype. This is the best one out there. Best Sachs, very good Walther and cast. Great sound. Ensembles are high spirited. All is perfectly paced.
Forget the rest. This is it............

5.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE-------Best digital ring with one caveat..........., 18 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Wagner (Audio CD)
In Rheingold Fricka's beautiful line to Wotan, "Why do you wait, Wotan?" is inaudable. track 19. Too bad, otherwise remarkable, get it.

Glorius sound, sound cast.

Maybe the best ring period.
