ASHER FISCH WAGNER Der Ring des Nibelungen Highlights

Forum Opera (France)
Christophe Rizoud

For lovers of highlights, Melba’s Ring conducted by Asher Fisch has been released in an abridged version: 2CDs as opposed to 14 in the complete version recorded live between 16 November and 12 December 2004 at the Adelaide Festival Theatre in Australia. We have already reviewed this Australian Tetralogy because a) this was a premiere performance in the land of the kangaroos, b) the sound quality (SACD) made the event and c) the Siegmund of Stuart Skelton really impressed us. Of course one can hear the tenor in this anthology: 14’38 of “Winterstürme” which in itself is worth seeking out.
