Lorin Maazel conducts the “Ring” Without Words

As bold as it may seem to compress Wagner’s operatic tetralogy Der Ring des Nibelungen into 75 minutes, the result of Lorin Maazel’s “symphonic synthesis”, which is documented here, is just as impressive. This synthesis includes practically all of the musical high points of Wagner’s tremendous tetralogy from the opening notes of Das Rheingold to the final chord of Götterdämmerung. The perfect concert for Wagner fans and those new to his music.
