Siegfried marks the 9th release in PentaTone’s unique Wagner Edition and the third release in PentaTone’s integral recording of Wagner’s epic Ring of the Nibelung cycle of four operas. The Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra and Maestro Marek Janowski achieve new heights of virtuosity in their interpretation of this story of the fearless Siegfried’s magic journey.
The operas were recorded live in concert versions, enabling the listener exclusively to concentrate on the
music. The concept behind this critically acclaimed cycle is as disarmingly simple as it is ingenious: to present only what Wagner himself has to say.
This award-winning series under Marek Janowski presents the music itself in its purest form. Its honesty has earned the praise of many a Wagner aficionado, and is sure to gain many more friends for the composer.
