Recorded in concert by the audiophile label PentaTone, Marek Janowski's brilliant performances of Richard Wagner's ten mature operas were issued as hybrid SACDs between 2011 and 2013, in celebration of the composer's bicentennial year. The most famous concert excerpts are presented here in the multichannel format, and include overtures, preludes, and orchestral music from Der fliegende Holländer, Lohengrin, Tannhäuser, Tristan und Isolde, Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg, Parsifal, and Wagner's masterpiece, Der Ring des Nibelungen. The Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra is exemplary in its dynamic performances showcasing Wagner's splendid orchestration, and the exceptional playing and high-quality engineering are apparent in the deep and rich sound of this package. There are many compilations of Wagner's greatest hits, including some of comparable musicianship and historical value, but few can match this generous collection for the excitement of the live performances and the spaciousness of the reproduction. Highly recommended, especially for anyone looking for a first-rate introduction to Wagner.
