Janowski, Marek; Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin
Celebrating the conductor Marek Janowski's triumphant Ring cycle at this year's Bayreuth festival, Pentatone rounds off his groundbreaking survey of Wagner's operas with the release of a double album featuring orchestral highlights from the series. Marek Janowski is one of today's foremost interpreters of Wagner. His recordings of the ten mature operas have been universally praised. The overtures, preludes and interludes in Wagner's operas have always had broad appeal with audiences for their heady, intoxicating atmosphere and vivid orchestration.
