The four operas of Richard Wagner's cycle Der Ring des Nibelungen together take about 15 hours, which makes for several records, tapes, or CDs, and a lot of studio time. For this reason, many full Ring recordings are the result of "unofficial" recording of live performances, particularly from the Bayreuth Festival where new productions are often broadcast by German radio.

Richard Wagner's main work is the tetralogy Der Ring des Nibelungen. Wagner wrote the libretto and music between 1848 and 1874. Herbert von Karajan (1951) Hans Knappertsbusch (1951, 1956, 1957, 1958) Joseph Keilberth (1952, 1953, 1954, 1955, 1956) Clemens Krauss (1953). Das Rheingold (Premiere 31 July 1951): Hans Knappertsbusch Die Walküre (Premiere 1 August 1951): Hans Knappertsbusch Siegfried (Premiere 2 August 1951): Hans Knappertsbusch Götterdämmerung (Premiere 4 August 1951): Hans Knappertsbusch. Before his Bayreuth debut as Ring director, Wolfgang Wagner had already directed the Ring at La Fenice in Venice. The basic visual elements were a concave and a convex disc, symbolizing the world of the gods and the Nibelungs. During the final bars of Götterdämmerung the destroyed disc was restored.

Read by Clemens Krauss.

Yet another Ring cycle from the golden age that was Bayreuth in the 1950s, this time from the 1953 festival. Conductor Clemens Krauss was making his debut there, brought in as a last-minute replacement for Hans Knappertsbusch, who had withdrawn in protest at Wieland Wagner's radical production. Krauss's conducting is the main interest here – more sensuous, more concerned with orchestral sonority than Keilberth, though sometimes at the expense of dramatic clarity.

As such, we might expect a sonically superior product to supercede previous non-official CD incarnations from multi-generational sources, be it Opera D’Oro’s smooth, mid-range-dominant equalization or the brighter, hissier Foyer and Laudis versions. RICHARD WAGNER - DER RING DES NIBELUNGEN (Bayreuth, 1953). Hans Hotter (baritone) Wolfgang Windgassen (tenor) Astrid Varnay (soprano) Regina Resnik (soprano) Gustav Neidlinger (bass) others. Krauss, Clemens (conductor). Bayreuth Festival Orchestra.

This recording caused a commotion when it came out in 1953 due to its palpable excitement in comparison to the relative sedateness of previous recorded performances. Clemens Krauss was one of the great Wagner conductors (and a personal friend of Richard Strauss), but what really sets this recording apart is the cast. Exclusive discount for Prime members.
