3.0 out of 5 stars For Ring cycle maniacs only July 16, 2014
Format:MP3 Music
When this set first appeared in 1992, the Haitink and Levine cycles were well-underway in Munich and New York.
But Barenboim's were the first Ring cycle recording to have emerged from the Bayreuth Festival since Boulez's famous one from 1979-1980. At the time as they appeared I listened to all three of these cycles with glittering eyes and ears, brushing off the niggling disappointments that annoyingly cropped up, too often, in this and the Levine cycle. I've listened to this particular Rheingold many times since, each time growing less and less satisfied with the results, until now, I find that it really isn't very good, all told. There are great elements about it, a few very good singers in a generally good cast, and a couple of washouts.

The high end: John Tomlinson's vividly sung, neurotic Wotan carries the show, almost single-handedly except when the stage-scenery-chewing Graham Clark is on stage then all others fade into the backdrop. Listening to Clark can grow tiresome without his acting acumen and gymnastic performances after awhile, and the quirky little chirps and quacks he throws in along the way with a few intimations of sprechstimme, a common malady with Loge singers, bores after a couple of listens.
But he and Tomlinson spark off each other and they alone hold the interest in most of this wonderful opera. Kurt Schreibmayer and Eva Johansson are outstanding as Froh and Freia, but their roles are comparatively tiny. Bodo Brinkmann's Donner would have been more effective if Barenboim hadn't trotted through the call to the mists the way he did.

Matthias Hölle stands out as a handsome-voiced Fasolt, every bit as menacing as his murderous brother Fafner, weakly sung here by Philip Kang. No one really stands out beyond those few.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Like It February 5, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having owned the Solti Rheingold for longer than I like to think about, I decided to buy this one to hear a different take.

The Good: 1) Overall excellent singing and characterization. John Tomlinson as Wotan was in fine voice for this performance. Overall the cast is quite fine. Tomlinson sounds tired in the Barenboim Siegfried, but not here. 2) Bayreuth sound - a bit reverberent, warm, enveloping. Sounds great! 3) Barenboim's tempos are well chosen. I haven't followed the recording with score in hand, but I don't hear the tempo instability that one reviewer complains about in his Bayreuth Walküre.

The Weak: 1) Solti had Kirsten Flagstad for Fricka! Barenboim didn't. His Fricka sings well enough, but she's not in the same class. 2) Live performances have stage noise; this one has quite a bit. I don't mind this, but if you like total silence behind the performance, then this recording isn't for you. 3) Solti had better anvils and hammers in the underworld. Bayreuth's sound tinny.

Overall it's a fine Rheingold. I like it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost Great December 10, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This was an overall good performance but it was still a live recording. This is usually a problem because of movement noise and props making sounds. This recording was no exception. As well, if you can stomach some horribly out of tune orchestral moments you should be fine.
