All Live Recordings Should Be Like This...

I am really enjoying this album! It brings a lot of things to the table. The recording itself is light and clear... almost as if this were an authentic instruments recording, with textures transparent & fully voiced. The orchestra isn't under-sized either. All the big moments take off and are fully exploited. The singers are good as well. Our Brunnhild sounds appropriately young (matronly sounding Brunnhild's are a turnoff), our Seigmund sings well (The Walse's are fantastic even if they mess with the music's drama a little... terribly thrilling upon hearing them the first time though...), and our Wotan is great in his "wait... Hold everything moment(s) in the second act. What a treat the folks in Stuttgart experienced! I like the Solti Ring best still (It really counts heavily in a recording's estimation in the Mind's Ear if you were first exposed to music by that recording), I still love my Karajan's, but I gotta tell you that I've been listening to this over and over and enjoying every minute of it! Another tip o' the hat to Naxos with such a great recording at an excellent price.
