There are several orchestral Ring works, and this is a lovely and enjoyable selection of 'the best bits' without 'those long half hours in between' - and without the singing which you either love or hate (probably both!)
Well performed and produced - fun potted Wagner!

In my recent exploration of the music of Wagner's Ring, I listened to several CD-length suites of the Ring for orchestra. I became aware of three jumbo-sized Ring suites (at this count) - Maazel, De Vlieger (the suite recorded here) and Friedmann Dressler. This BIS recording presents the suite compiled by Henk de Vlieger.

Maazel was the first conductor to present a Ring synthesis. As such his 1986 Telarc Ring Without Words with the Berliners has been more established in the catalogue. The Telarc recording and the unique Klang of the BPO during the Karajan years sold the recording, and it still continues to be good value even today in its mid-priced reissue. However, in recent years, other arrangers have presented their Ring syntheses on recordings. Here we are dealing with Henk de Vlieger's arrangement, first presented in 1991. De Vlieger's arrangement has so far enjoyed more recordings than the others (three as opposed to one for Maazel, two for Dressler and one for Tarkmann.) Though Dressler and Tarkmann are more generous in their 90-plus minute twin-disc presentations, recordings of their syntheses are harder to get. As such, most buyers who are looking for a single-disc potted Ring might be left with a choice between Maazel and de Vlieger. I am aware that the Maazel version is more established and still makes a value-friendly purchase. I know that his synthesis is the work of a conductor who has conducted the operas in the opera house, and as such it may have more credibility compared to syntheses done by orchestral musicians. However, I find that de Vlieger has the upper hand in presenting the story more clearly.

Good sound, but not the Ring as advertised. Very misleading marketing. Title should be "Orchestral extracts from the Ring".This would more accurately reflect what is being purchased.
