The depth of the work is a nice change of pace, and very refreshing.
CarrieB
She is not in the class of Flagstad, Traubel, or Nilsson, but apart from the problematic high notes I admire her Brunnhilde.
David A. Kemp
This CD is perfect for the beginner and the more experienced listener for various reasons.

Format: Audio CD
I'm recommending this 2-disc set because it's a sensible, cost-effective introduction to Wagner's masterpiece, Der Ring des Nibelungen, commonly called the Ring. The Ring is a sequential cycle of four operas, Das Rheingold, Die Walkure, Siegfried, and Gotterdammerung. With the exception of Das Rheingold, they are all of great length (Wagner was a colossal egotist who seemed to believe that no opera could be too long if he was its composer). As a result, acquiring and getting familiar with the entire Ring is an expensive and time-consuming proposition (my choice among complete Ring recordings, the landmark Solti/Vienna Philharmonic set on Decca/London, is 14 CDs costing around $1...-$...). Wagner purists will object to any attempt to excerpt "highlights" from the Ring, and they do have a point: unlike the standard Italian and French operas, which are readily divisible into recitatives, arias, duets, etc., the Wagner operas do not lend themselves to excerpting, with the result that "highlights" sets like this one are a collection of "bleeding chunks" torn from the body of the whole work.
Nevertheless there is a need for a way to approach the Ring, to be introduced to it and to get its flavor, and this generously filled 2-disc set fills that requirement reasonably well. (Wagner's six most important non-Ring operas are similarly if somewhat less generously highlighted on a Deutsche Grammophon 2-CD set that is a companion volume to this one, drawn from various Deutsche Grammophon complete opera recordings--none conducted by Karajan--so if you buy both sets--4 CDs--you gain at least some exposure to all ten major Wagner operas.)
CD 1 (76'33 in length) gives you 31'11 of Das Rheingold (1968), and 45'20 of Die Walkure (1967), which has long been the most popular of the four Ring operas.

This is absolutely the best "highlight" collection out there -- no others come close to the range and depth of material provided. But beware, this is not an "introduction to The Ring", as some claim -- the notes are skimpy, the titles of the excerpts are untranslated, there is no libretto, no description of the excerpts -- their context or meaning -- so what you have is a great summary of the works -- one that is most useful if you already know them -- something to take along with you in the car or while jogging or walking the dog to remind you of the real thing. Bear in mind that whatever the deficiencies of this collection, the others have the same faults also.

Admittedly, it is a daunting task to try to "get into" opera, and even more so with Wagner's Ring. This CD is perfect for the beginner and the more experienced listener for various reasons. First of all, it spoils you somewhat in presenting you with the best pieces of the various operas. These "bleeding chunks" certainly give you a wonderful introduction to the various motifs, and most importantly, are very long pieces. The CD manages to capture several of the different flavors present in Wagner's opera.
Secondly, the CD is worth its price mainly due to Karajan's conducting. After listening to Solti's version of the Ring (also wonderful), I was suprised by the subtle hints he seems to charge through. You can literally hear the galloping of the horse, or subtle musical hints which add a great appreciation and character to the opera. Thus, if you have experienced several other conductors, but have not had the pleasure of Karajan, it would be worth the price.
Unfortunatly, some of the singing is kinda weak. Again, after Solti's Valkyries, you will have a hard time getting into the singing. And again, Karajan's Brunhilde isn't as strong as Solti's, but she still holds her own. Loge, here, sounds like a trickster (though he does sing/speak his words), and the Wotan's are alright.
In conclusion, this is perfect if you want to add flavor to your Wagner listening experience, or just want to know what the big deal is. I, of course, suggest getting one of the DVD's to get the big picture of what is going on (Levine's MET is a good start). So buy and enjoy.

DG's late *Panorama* series could be a hit-and-miss affair. The two I especially enjoy are Rimsky-Korsakov Panorama: Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and Mussorgsky Panorama: Modest Mussorgsky, but now I have to add two more - this and the highlights set from the non-Ring operas with different conductors and casts Panorama (Highlights from der fliegende Hollander, Lohengrin, Tannhauser, Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg, Parsifal, Tristan und Isolde)

I'm a "Wagner" neophyte who only begrudingly purchased Ormandy's Wagner: Ride of the Valkyries Highlights and Szell's Wagner: Orchestral Music from Der Ring des Nibelungen Die Meistersinger - Tristan und Isolde "bleeding chunks" orchestral selections, and Eileen Farrell's "Wesendonk Songs" Wagner: Selections from Tristan und Isolde, Tannhäuser & Götterdämmerung / Wesendonck-Lieder (Royal Edition No. 100). And unlike several less-than-friendly Ormandy critics, I find his recording having more warm and impact than the revered Szell performances.
