"... a bold concept, which in a performance as fine as this works remarkably well, making a symphonic structure of just over an hour."
- Gramophone

"... Henk de Vlieger builds a penetrating symphonic poem that reflects the dramatic depths of The Ring. No singing, but hardy playing from the RSNO."
- Classic FM

"... wonderful playing and sound ... Järvi knows exactly what to do to make the music speak. The orchestra sounds better than I’ve ever heard them, especially in the brass."
- American Record Guide

This hour-long, orchestra-only version of Wagner’s famous opera cycle, Der Ring des Nibelungen is arranged by Henk de Vlieger, an arranger, composer and percussionist in the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic. The album, a symphonic compilation from the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and conductor Neeme Järvi, "compresses" Wagner’s four mighty Ring operas yet includes all the major themes and leitmotifs.

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!
