This selection of some of Wagner’s finest orchestral excerpts opens with the
‘storm-swept ballad’ of Der fliegende Holländer, the opera which launched his
epoch-defining later masterpieces. The entire span of Der Ring des Nibelungen
is represented in this programme, from the luminous rainbow bridge which leads
the gods to Valhalla in Das Rheingold, the urgent drama of Die Walküre, and
the atmospheric repose of the Forest Murmurs in Siegfried, to the tragic depths
of Siegfried’s Funeral March. This recording has been praised for its ‘radiant
sensuousness’. (Gramophone) Volumes 2 and 3 in this series are available on
8.572768 and 8.572769.
