Description

The highly anticipated first release in Gergiev's Ring cycle, recorded in the Mariinsky Concert Hall over a number of months, the disc features an outstanding cast of Anja Kampe, Jonas Kaufmann, René Pape and Nina Stemme.


The Mariinsky Theatre has close connections with Wagner and his music. The composer conducted at the theatre and was even offered the post of Music Director. It is also believed to be the first place where any of the music from the Ring was performed. Since Valery Gergiev became Music Director of the Mariinsky, Wagner’s music has once again become a core part of the theatre’s repertoire, both in St Petersburg and on tour.
