CRITIC REVIEW:

“As the number of RING recordings increases the collector with a limited budget has some difficult decisions to make. The choice of recordings is now quite staggering. It does not seem all that long ago when there were two or three to choose from but now there are substantially more. So, which recording would I recommend to someone new to Wagner? Probably the 1967 Böhm Bayreuth set. The virtues of these recordings have long been extolled by the music press and the Good CD guides. To my mind the 1953 Krauss recording comes pretty close and, if it is not the ‘best’ RING, it is certainly one of the great RINGs.”
