This is the 9th release in PentaTone’s successful Wagner Edition and the third release of the cycle: “Der Ring des Nibelungen. The last “Ring recording” (Götterdämmerung) will follow in November 2013. The PentaTone Edition is attracting a lot of (positive) media attention.
It is becoming THE Wagner Edition of the 21st century.
In April our recording of Parsifal won a BBC Music Magazine Award for technical excellence. This comes after an Editor’s Choice for Flying Dutchman and Lohengrin (Gramophone), a “Recording of the Month” for Parsifal (BBC Music Magazine) a “Opera Choice of the Month” for Meistersinger and Lohengrin (BBC Music Magazine) and 3 x CD of the week for one of the albums in the Sunday Times. With each new release we see the sales increasing, The Edition is becoming a collector’s item.
