The ultimate Ring cycle, 19 July 2000
I first heard this Ring cycle about ten years ago, and I was captivated. There has never been, and I can't imagine that there ever will be, a Ring to equal it. This is Wagner as surely he was meant to be heard. All the performers are magnificent, and Solti's conducting was his very best, which is saying a great deal. Culshaw really knew what he was doing here! If you even -just- like opera, you must hear this. If you think you don't like opera, this will convert you. If you like Wagner, why don't you already own these CDs? It is -the- most stunning musical experience of a lifetime.
