regardless of how gentle the language could have sounded,
This review is from: Wagner - 'Der Ring' Ohne Worte / 'The Ring' Without Words (Audio CD)
I love listening to the orchestral music of Richard Wagner because it is extremely powerful and moving and Wagner is one of the masters of the gradual emotional buildup and release. I have quite a few recordings of Wagner's orchestral music, overtures and preludes but the one I end up coming back most often to is The Ring Without Words. Music from the Ring is incredible and no lyrics are needed here, regardless how poetic and gentle the language could have sounded. I find this recording to be of a very good quality of tone and I really like the arrangements which sort of compiles it all nicely. Ring Without Words is my favorite tale of the story told.

I really like your reviews, I go to them often - they help me put a different perspective on the music that I've been loving for the last 36 years or so (I adore KC and your observations are wonderful). Thanks for taking the trouble to put so much out there for us to dip into. BUT! This performance is the worse Wagner traversal ever! This CD is appaling! Please don't give people a bum steer. You are ineffably right about so many other things about music that people may not realise that you've got this wrong!
