The third element of Wagner’s Ring cycle contains humour, drama and a concluding ecstasy as the eponymous hero meets his heroine Brünnhilde, setting up the explosive finale of the concluding opera. With enormous orchestral forces and dramatic use of leitmotiv themes the music portrays the full gamut of emotions and provides a perfect vehicle to display the heights of the Hallé’s powers under Elder. Recorded at the Bridgewater Hall, capturing all the drama of the acclaimed live performance.
“Roaring jubilation and radiant beauty from Elder and the Halle…. Elder is a superb Wagnerian, acutely conscious of the complex relationship between tempo and pace, and immaculate in his judgment both of the span of each act and the ebb and flow of detail within it. Thrilling climaxes alternated with moments of astonishing beauty and quiet, almost exquisite terror.” - The Guardian on the Hallé’s performance of Siegfried
Recorded at the performance in The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester on 2 and 3 June 2018 and in rehearsal
