Press Quotes


"Again Janowski sets incredible standards with this release which is definitely in the top list in the history of recordings. Highly recommended to purchase!" (September 2013)

Music Web International

"That I still believe this Siegfried must be added to any self-respecting Wagner library is mainly because of Janowski’s masterly conducting of his first-rate orchestra. There are many marvellous passages. These include, notably the Preludes to each of the Acts, his accompaniments to the arrival of the Wanderer in Act I and Siegfried’s reflections under the lime tree in Act II. There’s also the incredibly pictorial - beautifully incandescent - passages in Act III as the clouds disperse and Siegfried braves the flames to reach the sleeping Brünnhilde and awaken her." (December 2013)

CD Choice UK

"Triumphant Siegfried from PENTATONE. The sound on these three SACDs is quite magnificent and matches the performance. As in the previous eight issues in this Wagner series,the engineers have achieved a natural balance – one that allows every detail of Wagner’s striking orchestration to be heard and yet the vocal lines are never obscured even in the loudest passages. The 5.0 surround mix definitely completes the illusion of ‘being there’. This dramatically thrilling recording of Siegfried must surely take its place as the finest to appear on disc for very many years." (November 2013)

Avant-Scène Opéra

"Theatre reigns everywhere, and the orchestra takes its big part in it: just listen to the last scene between Mime and Siegfried and try to find in other version those woods and these strings involved so closely with the singers's changes, at the same level so to say." (February 2014)

Album information

Siegfried marks the 9th release in PentaTone’s unique Wagner Edition and the third release in PentaTone’s integral recording of Wagner’s epic Ring of the Nibelung cycle of four operas. The Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra and Maestro Marek Janowski achieve new heights of virtuosity in their interpretation of this story of the fearless Siegfried’s magic journey.

The operas were recorded live in concert versions, enabling the listener exclusively to concentrate on the music. The concept behind this critically acclaimed cycle is as disarmingly simple as it is ingenious: to present only what Wagner himself has to say.

This award-winning series under Marek Janowski presents the music itself in its purest form. Its honesty has earned the praise of many a Wagner aficionado, and is sure to gain many more friends for the composer.
