"Four Stars. The orchestral textures have a spaciousness and transparency and an unforced sense of architectural shaping and dramatic flow ... the real surprise here is Matthias Goerne’s performance as Wotan. His handling of the text is as exemplary as anyone would expect from such a seasoned Lieder singer, but it’s the power and gravitas that Goerne brings to the role that are so startling."
- The Guardian

"... the recording is a technological triumph ... satisfies both as a faithful reading of Wagner’s sonically thrilling score and as a memento of the frisson of this important occasion ... distinguished by the participation of a splendidly-selected cast ... the orchestra’s playing, bolstered by marvellous performances by brasses and woodwinds, is consistently on an aptly Wagnerian scale ... a performance of grandeur and gravity ... an achievement for which every participant and all Wagnerians must give thanks ..."
- Voix des Arts

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!
