"Here's a true and desirable bargain. One of its most telling assets is the actual recording, still the most natural, clear and most sensitively balanced available." (Gramophone)

"Here's a true and desirable bargain. One of its most telling assets is the actual recording, still the most natural, clear and most sensitively balanced available. Then it has the Dresden Staatskapelle playing with the utmost beauty from start to finish - try the start of Act 3 of GOtterdlimmerung - and with lean power when that's called for. There's no feeling, as with some of its predecessors or successors, that the orchestral sound is being artificially boosted: voices and players are in an ideal relationship. Which is not to say that such purple passages as the Magic Fire Music, Ride of the Valkyries, Rhine Journey and Funeral March want anything in visceral excitement." (Gramophone)
