ASHER FISCH WAGNER Der Ring des Nibelungen Highlights

Music & Vision Daily (UK)
Howard Smith

Today we welcome these Highlights in German (live on Melba Records MR301133-34 2CDs, lasting 2 hours 34 mins) selected from the complete recording made at Festival Adelaide, Australia in 2004.

It would be crass to do anything but endorse those who have already voiced their approval of the live Adelaide 'Ring' in its entirety -- New Classics (UK), Fanfare (US), Gramophone (UK), Diapason -- Mondadori (France/Italy), Sydney Morning Herald (OZ), High Fidelity Review (US), BBC Music Magazine (UK) and Opus (Canada).

Many of the accolades enthused at Melba's sonic excellence...

The South Australian 'highlights' winnow Wagner's ostentatious marathon down to a manageable 2 hours and 34 minutes though weighty Melba packaging and notes are as monumental as a Russian novel of Tolstoi or Dostoyevsky.
