John Sunier
Audiophile Audition, November 2012

This Blu-ray is a most compelling instrumental Readers Digest version of The Ring. It could serve as an introduction to the entire thing…

This is, after all, the Berlin Philharmonic, and boy do they know their Wagner. The lossless surround sonics are of course way ahead of the standard CDs…The images are amazingly hi-res: one can see tiny fluff on suit jackets and moles on musician’s necks. And great camera work. There are quite a few closeups of Maazel…they seem well-timed and appropriate. One amazing bit in the music for Das Rheingold is when Maazel nearly jumps off the podium to cue a percussionist with a giant wood hammer—really giant—to hit a big wood block. The notes are plenty interesting too… © 2012 Audiophile Audition Read complete review
