Zubin Mehta took over the position of Bavarian General Music Director in 1998, heralding a new era in the history of Germany's most venerable opera orchestra. Their subsequent first cyclic performance of Richard Wagner’s Ring, begun in 2002, was a triumph for both the maestro and his musicians. “The first multi-channel production by Farao sets new standards in live operatic recording... and the musical quality leaves nothing to be desired.” (Stereo) “... in terms of sound quality, the best recording that can be purchased at the moment.” (Süddeutsche Zeitung)
