The final part of the Wagner concert series by Marek Janowski and the
BERLIN, June 19, 2012 /CNW/ - "The Ring of the Nibelung" will be the
grand finale of the 2012/2013 season of concert performances of the
Wagner concert series, which has been running for the past three years,
performed by the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin under the direction
of Marek Janowski. On 22 and 24 November 2012 the sounds of "Das
Rheingold" (The Rhine Gold) and "Die Walküre" (The Valkyrie) will ring
out in the Berlin Philharmonie with "Siegfried" and "Götterdämmerung"
(Twilight of the Gods) following on 1 and 15 March 2013.
The four concert evenings include amongst their international singing
elite the voices of Tomasz Konieczny (Wotan), Ricarda Merbeth (Freia),
Iris Vermillion (Fricka), Robert Dean Smith (Siegmund), Petra Lang
(Brünnhilde), Stephen Gould (Siegfried, 1.3.), Matti Salminen (Fafner,
Hagen) and Lance Ryan (Siegfried, 15.3.). The Rundfunkchor Berlin will
also take part in the "Götterdämmerung".
Like all ten parts of the Wagner concert series, the four concerts of
the "Ring" will be recorded by the PentaTone label and Deutschlandradio
and later broadcast and released on Super Audio CDs, one after the
other, up to the end of 2013.
The Wagner concert series places music squarely at the centre of
attention. The absolute listening experience makes it possible to hear
otherwise inaudible nuances in Wagner's works. At the same time the
pure reproduction of the music creates the ideal conditions for the
