Customer Review

on 26 April 2007
Like other reviewers here I picked this up on Ebay - for the princely sum of £2.95 + p & p !!!

Because of that I was expecting the quality of the performance and the recording to match the price but the fact is both are very good indeed.

None of the singers are well-known or in the first rank of performers but they do a splendid job and the live recording makes for an exciting atmosphere with very little audience intrusion.

Obviously it cannot compete with people like Solti but at this price who can complain? Now you can own two Ring cycles !!!

The librettos are German only but easily (and cheaply) downloadable from the web. My full set cost my $5.

If you are interested in Wagner but can't afford a top label set - don't hesitate. If you feel like complementing your owned recording with a live performance - grab this now.

On a more general note, this is about the 7th or 8th set I have bought from Brilliant Classics. I have a complete set of Haydn symphonies, all of Brahms' piano music and sets of Corelli and Granados - all at bargain prices and well worth a listen.
