Richard Wagner's 200th Anniversary
We salute Richard Wagner on the 200th anniversary of his birthday, today 22 May 2013.
His great music will live for a long time with or without any surrounding controversy.
On Warner Classics and in particular our label Teldec Classics we have a great offering of fine recordings of Wagner operas, notably the famous opera cycle 'Der Ring des Nibelungen' in the legendary Bayreuth performances conducted by Daniel Barenboim in the early 1990s, both on CD, on iTunes, Spotify, and especially the DVD and most recently on blu-ray.
Check out the special 13 minute free video of Daniel Barenboim and Sir John Tomlinson talking about this Bayreuth Ring Cycle.
Sir John Tomlinson also appears on BBC Radio 3’s “In Tune” this Friday, 24 May talking about the Ring.
