Nicholas Sheffo
Fulvue Drive-in, March 2010

Now collected in one box set, the Naxos/ArtHaus release of brings together the four Staatskapelle Weimar performances of the four parts of Wagner’s classic work allow for serious fans to enjoy the complete works without having to hunt them down…Stage Director Michael Schultz and Conductor Carl St, Clair have pulled off an amazing, complete performance of The Ring Cycle as rich, lively, creepy and vivid as any I have seen to date. The first three parts are as impressive as I found the concluding part on Blu-ray a while ago and would put it on a list of definitive versions of the original work, though that is a trickier task in Classical genre than say Pop, Rock or Soul. However, this is an amazing set, even without extras and unless you want to get the already released Blu-ray box [101374, this is one you cannot go wrong with.
