About

Everything the conductor Sir Simon Rattle touches 'turns to gold'. Everything except for the music dramas of Richard Wagner, that is! It has often been asserted, albeit without good reason, that Rattle and Wagner do not go together. This has now been conclusively disproved by the third collaboration between Rattle and the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, together with a team of the very best Wagner singers.

This concert performance of 'Das Rheingold', the first opera in Wagner's mighty tetralogy 'The Ring of the Nibelung', was performed in the Herkulessaal of the Munich Residenz on April 24 and 25, 2015, and has now been brought out by BR KLASSIK on two CDs just a few months after the live event.
