"After Lohengrin, Wagner completed the first two of the four Ring operas, interrupted composition of the third for several other projects, and only returned to the Ring in earnest when the possibility of staging it as he wished began to appear possible. The whole Ring was finally premiered in 1876; the audience was inclined to see attending the four-day event as something more like visiting a shrine than simply going to the theatre for musical entertainment. This notion persists; to this day staging and attending integral performances of the Ring are considered the most significant events in the lives of both opera companies and opera-going fans. Numerous excerpts from the four immense scores are heard in symphonic concerts and various adaptations throughout the world." - AMG.

Incredible dynamics. Captures the full weight and poser of the Orchestra. One of the most powerfull presentations of Wagner's 'Ring' on record.
Surface noise is random 'crackles and ticks' which, although of low-levelare still audible on moderately quiet passages. The price of this LP has been adjusted to reflect this. Still a great listen.
Each record is washed on a VPI cleaning machine using a proprietary 3-5 agent process which is determined by the needs of the individual record. Each record is then listened to 100% to insure that the posted description is exactly what you can expect to get.
