"... there is only one recording which defines the industry's finest achievement: the Decca/Solti Ring ... this recording is monumental."
- Gramophone

"... performed with heart-stopping drama and power ... groundbreaking ... the result's exciting. Rheingold wholly belies its age; the spacious orchestral textures and clarity of the voices are really impressive ... a superb restoration ... a Ring cycle refreshed for a new generation."
- BBC Music Magazine

"... widely acknowledged as one of the most significant events in the history of classical recording ... felt by many (myself included) to be the greatest recording ever made ... a cause for celebration for Wagnerians, music lovers and audiophiles ... competitive today for sound and performance quality and especially for their casts of singers ... an essential acquisition."
- Fanfare

"The unsurpassed quality of singers and orchestra, Solti's astonishing ability to tell a dramatic story in music, the epic scope and sweep of work and performance and the sound, as much a wonder for our own time as half a century ago, make these recordings seem more precious, their qualities less likely to ever be repeated ... it's everything the serious lover of this work and this recording could want ... all earlier digital editions suddenly sound muffled ... these performances deserve to be heard in the best possible sound. This set delivers it and much more."
- Stereophile

Twice voted the greatest recording ever made (by Gramophone and BBC Music Magazine) these historic performances of Wagner's The Ring led by Sir Georg Solti were originally rereleased in 2012 as an epic 17-disc box set to mark the 100th anniversary of Solti's birth. It took Solti and the Vienna Philharmonic seven years to record the entire cycle, from 1958 to 1965, making these the first complete studio recordings of The Ring.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
