5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Music. REAL POWER!, 31 Mar 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wagner - 'Der Ring' Ohne Worte / 'The Ring' Without Words (Audio CD)
Very Good Interpretation, Really Good Sound Quality! Wagner's Ring Cycle can be very hard going for some with all the opera singers going full pelt but THIS IS 100% ORCHESTRA ONLY!!! There is NO vocal work here - and I prefer it - You can hear all the Epic arrangements more profoundly (Im sure purists will disagree but Im new to this!)
My personal favourite Act is Gotterdammerung - Really heavy and powerful -
Siegfried's Funeral is a piece ive had a love affair with since i first heard it used on the 1981 movie, Excalibur (classic).
Id recommend this for anyone new to Wagner or Classical generally and its a must if like me you like the darker stuff (Im principally a Metal fan but if you read my other reviews you'll definiteley see how i went from Metallica to this).

Adam, I hope you bought this. Maazel is one of the last of the old guard of great conductors and i could only imagine the VPO or the Chicago doing this music even more dramatically for him. Note that when I recommended Solti as the best ever Funeral Music, it was the VPO he was conducting. Good review. Take care, Tom K.
