About

None of Wilhelm Furtwängler’s 'Ring' performances from Bayreuth or other places in Germany have survived as recordings. However, three recordings do still exist, one from a performance in London and two recordings that were made in Italy. The first of these comes from a live performance at La Scala, Milan in 1950, and the second a 1953 radio production in Rome. It is the latter of these that is presented here in this bargain 13 CD set. Previously available in different packaging, this title is now released with new documentation in a 'clam' style box that is a feature of the ‘Documents’ label sets.

For this recording, the orchestra of the radio station was supported by musicians from other orchestras, and Furtwängler had more than a month available for rehearsals. The star casts include Ferdinand Frantz, Wolfgang Windgassen, Gottlob Frick, Hilde Konetzni, Martha Mödl, Ludwig Suthaus, Josef Greindl and Margarete Klose.
