The first release of the first stereo recording of the work, the historical importance of this set of Wagner's Siegfried is undeniable. Recorded by Decca at the 1955 Bayreuth Festival, this performance directed by Joseph Keilberth was to have been issued as part of the first complete Ring cycle. But persuaded that only a studio recording could do the work justice, Decca decided to shelve Keilberth's performance, a decision that led to Georg Solti recording Siegfried with the Vienna Philharmonic and ultimately to the release of a Ring cycle that many still regard as the finest ever recorded. But aside from its inherent historical value, what's its aesthetic value? While much better than average, Keilberth's Siegfried doesn't challenge the established order.

You have to hand it to Strauss: using his success as the basis for a 40-minute tone poem suggests no limit to confidence. It was, of course, the end of the century (1898) and a self-celebratory mood was in the air. Yet there's no lack of conviction in the music either. From a powerful opening depicting "the hero" (the composer), we move through a vicious scherzo–the critics!–to an extended love scene with the hero's companion.

This legendary Bayreuth Festival production of Wagner’s 'Der Ring des Nibelungen', directed by Harry Kupfer, with designs by Hans Schavernoch, and conducted by Daniel Barenboim, is considered perhaps the finest video recording of these four operas ever made. For their innovative modernist staging, Kupfer and his team turned away from the work’s time of origin and located The Ring at a “road of history”, a meeting-place of past, present and future, which sets the scene for the story’s struggles of power and love. Barenboim’s authoritative yet highly responsive reading of the immense score and the extraordinary performances of the cast help to make this a truly memorable Ring.

The Metropolitan Opera Ring is part of a series of Wagnerian productions undertaken there that attempt to restore a Romantic realism congruent with the music, while using modern stage techniques, [and] for those who have dreamed of seeing the saga look like their visions of mythology, the results may be worth it. (The Metropolitan Opera Guide)
A traditional production with dragons, toads, and a splendid rainbow bridge all present and correct. Wotan's Farewell from the end of Die Walküre is particularly touching, and Jessye Norman is magnificent as Sieglinde (just listen to her cry of "O hehrstes Wunder!" in Act Three of Walküre!) (Presto Classical)

Like those other great symphonists-Beethoven before him and Mahler after him-Schubert completed no symphonies after his ninth. This has come to be known as the "Great C Major," not only because it is an altogether grander work than his Sixth Symphony in the same key, but also because it is one of the truly majestic pillars of the whole symphonic canon. The celebrated orchestra of the composer's native Vienna is led here by the masterful Sir Georg Solti in a recording unsurpassed among many competitors for its warmth, presence, and detail.

SIEGFRIED WAGNER (1869-1930): Sonnenflammen, Op. 8. The latest new Siegfried opera, completed in 1912 but not premiered until the last month of the war in 1918, is set in Byzantium, a court of dissipation, cowardice, hypocrisy and other less than attractive traits, whose soiled characters the composer manages to portray in all kinds of shades of gray, surprising us with all kinds of character nuance which we don't tend to expect in stage works set in the dim past. As always, the music is melodic and often comfortably lyrical, playing against the grain, so to speak, given the apocalyptic ending which approaches. Symbolism, double meanings, allusions (often musical) to his earlier operas - there's a lot here to appreciate beyond the notes and Peter Pachl continues to be a good, concise guide in his excellent notes. 2 CDs. German-English libretto. Roman Trekel (baritone), Michaela Schneider (soprano), Richard Brunner (tenor), Jürgen Trekel (bass), Chorus and Orchestra of the Halle Opera House; Roger Epple. CPO 777 097 (Germany)

La Fura del Baus, famous for their opening ceremony of the Olympic games in Barcelona and opera stagings in Salzburg, Ruhrtriennale, etc., use in their groundbreaking Ring 3D computer projections that evoke computer games, organic structures built of athletic performers that recall the "Cirque du soleil". “…excellent orchestral playing and decent sound to match…a striking and often absorbing experiment” (Gramophone).

"The central part of the "Ring" tetralogy is precisely this: a hero has been created who would actually have had all the attributes of freedom, but nobody remembered to tell him…" (Patrice Chéreau). "One can only marvel at how enthrallingly Chéreau has made visible every ramification of this malignant idyll and bitter comedy. In its faithful service to this fabulously polished staging Brian Large's video direction is a model" (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung).
