Richard WAGNER (1813–1883) Orchestral Music from Der Ring des Nibelungen
Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra / JoAnn Falletta
The essential meaning of Wagner's magnum opus Der Ring des Nibelungen is wrapped up in the composer's own lifetime pursuit of transcendent romance, with the redemption of eternal love one of the primary tenets of this and his other music dramas. Wagner's gift for orchestral colour and scenic characterisation make his operas highly suited to the genre of the tone poem, and these seven tableaux evoke major scenarios in the saga, as well as providing a sense of the course and spirit of the greatest operatic drama ever written.
