From Siegmund's stormy entrance to Wotan's sorrowful exit, Die Walkure is the most dramatic opera in Wagner's Ring cycle. Here, this 4-CD set with a star cast, James Levine produces “the maximum dramatic significance from the orchestral music” -Gramophone –
“The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra are one of the stars of this performance. The playing is always secure, but goes beyond mere confidence into a gloriously exciting projection of the score's multifarious combinations of colours, nurtured by Levine to produce a richness of detail unsurpassed in any other recording.”
This is a beautifully packaged four-disc set, sold at a budget price, and featuring full track-lists plus synopses in English, German and French.
Starring Hildegard Behrens (Brünnhilde), Jessye Norman (Sieglinde), Christa Ludwig (Fricka), Gary Lakes (Siegmund), James Morris (Wotan) and Kurt Moll (Hunding).
Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, conducted James Levine.
