Overview

Because the complete "Der Ring des Nibelungen" can run 18 hours or longer, the most popular orchestral sections have been extracted for concert performances, and occasionally combined as a large suite or "symphonic Ring." Notable "Ring without words" recordings have been made by George Szell and Lorin Maazel, and a special orchestral arrangement by Henk de Vlieger, Der Ring: An Orchestral Adventure, has been recorded by Edo de Waart and Neeme Järvi. Now Andreas N. Tarkman joins the fray with his own arrangement, performed on this Coviello Classics audiophile package by the Nordwestdeutsche Philharmonie, conducted by Daniel Klajner. Tarkman covers all of the familiar material, including such favorites as the Prelude to "Das Rheingold," the Ride of the Valkyries, the Magic Fire Music, Forest Murmurs, Siegfried's Rhine Journey, and Siegfried's Funeral Music, though the time provided by two hybrid SACDs allows more music than any of the versions mentioned above, and much more of Wagner's epic is outlined in this four-part work. Best of all, the extraordinarily rich and spacious sound of the recording gives the music its due, making Tarkman's version more impressive than the others in its sonic depth and powerful dynamic range. For listeners who are thinking of taking the plunge into Wagner's magnificent music dramas, this excellent recording is highly recommended as a great starting point.
