“Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen is, in my opinion, one of, if not the, greatest musical works in history. It is fifteen hours of gorgeous, dramatic music, coupled to an endlessly fascinating and moving story. Needless to say, every recording of this gigantic work is going to be flawed in some way, so choosing a Ring recording is a question of personal tastes and preferences. While Solti's 1958-65 Vienna cycle is by far the most famous and popular, it is not the one I like the best. Herbert von Karajan's cycle, recorded from 1966 to 1970, is the best cycle I have ever heard. First and foremost, Karajan's conducting is almost perfect. He is both more lyrical (some moments in the cycle are astoundingly beautiful) and more dramatic (he makes thrilling use of the timpani in the big scenes) than his rivals, through his complete knowledge and mastery of Wagner's orchestral techniques and balances. This recording makes you realize how ingenious a composer Wagner was: 120 musicians playing as one, intertwining melody and harmony to produce one glorious whole. Karajan allows the orchestra their full sonority and tone-color but never drowns out or abandons the singers. He is helped by the fact that his orchestra, the Berlin Philharmonic, is the best in the world, even better than Solti's Vienna Philharmonic. These Berliners are so magnificent it takes your breath away. Added to this, the singers are in many cases preferable to Solti's – or other rivals. Helga Dernesch, in particular, is a revelation as Brünnhilde. Like Nilsson, she has a rich, powerful voice, but unlike Nilsson, her voice is warm and beautiful. She has a contralto-like fullness at the bottom of her range (a few years after she made this recording, she became a dramatic mezzo), a steady, beautiful middle register, and a glorious, radiant, powerful top. She has crystal clear diction and is such a convincing actress that the listener feels she is listening to Brünnhilde herself, not a singer. Unfortunately, she only appears in Siegfried and Götterdämmerung; Régine Crespin, the Walküre Brünnhilde, is an intelligent singer, but possesses nowhere near as magnificent an instrument as does Dernesch. Just as there are two Brünnhildes, there are also two Siegfrieds. In the third opera, Jess Thomas is excellent. He has a voice of unusually fine quality: rich and baritonal at the bottom and middle but ringing at the top. The only drawback is that his voice is a bit smaller than desirable, and he sometimes gets hoarse. Still, it is a commanding, colorful performance, and his singing in the love duet is very beautiful. In Götterdämmerung, Siegfried is sung by the vastly underrated Helge Brilioth. His voice is larger and even more beautiful than Thomas's. I wish he had sung Siegfried, too, but it Thomas isn't bad at all. Wotan is halved, as well. Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau is tested by the Rheingold Wotan, but he passes the test with flying colors, creating a detailed portrait of the ambitious, selfish god. Thomas Stewart, in the other two operas, is even better. Even though Hans Hotter is both richer and more beautiful of voice and more detailed of portrayal, Fischer-Dieskau and Stewart present magnificent Wotans. Zoltan Kelemen as Alberich is all you could ask for – sinister, cruel, ambitious and evil. The bass roles are split between Martti Talvela (Fasolt, Hunding) and Karl Ridderbusch (Fafner, Hagen). Ridderbusch at first might seem an odd choice for Hagen, because his voice is dark and thunderous, but not black and menacing. However, this adds another dimension to his masterful portrayal of the incredibly evil villain – an evil nobility – that makes his performance that much more compelling. He is a fabulous Hagen. He sings Fafner vividly and Talvela makes the most of his two roles. Jon Vickers is splendidly heroic and lyrical as Siegmund, and Gundula Janowitz uses her gorgeous, radiant lyric soprano to produce a beautiful Sieglinde and Gutrune. Oralia Dominguez is beautiful as Erda, and the Rhinemaidens, Valkyries and Norns are all excellent. Josephine Veasey is a bitingly intense Fricka, and Gerhard Stolze sings Loge and the Siegfried Mime with amazing powers of characterization. DG's remastering for its Originals series is extremely successful: the sound is natural and there is almost no tape hiss. The packaging is extremely beautiful, worthy of this masterful recording. When all is said and done, a fair listener is likely to conclude that of all the available Ring Cycles, this Karajan cycle is the one to buy.”

This is a great set, thank you. But why do you not include EAC logs and cues? This would make this a perfect post. Thanks.

This is indeed a great set. I already have the music, so I wonder if it would be possible for you to upload the covers+booklets separatly to spare me from downloading all 4 gb just to get covers and booklets. Thanks!

I don't understand why you did not include the CUE files.
After all these GB painful download, I'm going to throw it away.
I am not patient enough to write all that track list by hand.
Don't like to name music track01 track02...

Many thanks -- finally an upgrade to my set of LPs (the big hardbound libretto will still come in handy!). jmn30 is quite obviously too foolish for words.

Big big glitch in track 6 CD3, sadly. Think i skip this download and hope for at better version. But anyway thanks for the share :o)

Please, forgive me for inconveniences!

1) It Repost three-year prescription.

2) It is I release – I only “delivery service”.

I very much sympathise, but I can not help anything! I do not have these disks! Therefore I cannot improve release. Sorry! = (

Dont worry Avax… Thank you very very much for everything you are doing… It is a great opportunity, even with all the glitches mentioned to listen to Karajan's version of this masterpiece… And of course if anyone likes it, he can easily buy it ;)

Thanks you for kind words! %)

Just for the record, so there will be no misunderstanding: We appreciate all your work Avax, and don't blame the errors on you. We can take it or leave, but it would have been great with a rip with no errors. But if this one error is all, it's possible to live with that. Sure there are no track names, but if thats the price to pay - it's cheap. So keep it coming!

Hi Avax,
thanks a lot, but http://rapidshare.com/files/103313727/Wagner_Disc_05_Walkure_CD3.part3.rar is down.
Please fix it!

Hello Avax,

....we will remember them. My appreciation is offered freely
for this post. Much gratitude too.

I was working my way through downloading these files, then they dried up today:
I got as far as Wagner_Disc_08_Siegfried_CD2.part1 downloaded.

So the rest of Siegfried and the whole of Gotterdammerung are now dead RS links.

Would you be so kind as to re-awaken them?

Could you reupload these? This sounds like such a terrific set!!!!

It would be much appreciated :-)
