Discussion: Wagner: Gotterdämmerung - Janowski
December 15, 2013
I have the Valencia/Mehta Ring with Lance Ryan. He sung Siegfried in a better vocal shape than in this Götterdämmerung. Here, in the duo with Brünnhilde, the uncertainty of pitch is distracting at the beginning. It becomes better after. But the real problem is that his voice lacks thickness and stability in the emission. His singing is often nasal ... more

March 6, 2012

To know it exactly, you have to ... more

I bought a second-hand model here in Switzerland and I have seen several times this preamplifier on audiogon for ~ 2500$ (normal price, perhaps 7000 $). This model has received very high praises on ... more
More Wagner on SACD!
November 9, 2010
Curious that you find that the only weakness is the Bruenhilde of Jennifer Wilson. I find her voice the revelation of this Ring. She has a huge vocal power, a creamy middle register with beautiful color and high notes which are about the best you can hear. A very promising wagnerian soprano. A voice without any wobble, something wchich is rare with ... more
