The primary criticism of von Karajan's Ring when it was initially released was that his singers are quite uneven, and some of his casting is unconventional and controversial (in particular, his "artificial" casting is problematic, .  . So, between the Karajan and Bohm 2-CD Ring highlights sets, there is not a clearcut winner. To make choosing more difficult, both are priced the same and both offer very generously filled CDs (both have about two and a half hours of music).

The Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and music director JoAnn Falletta present seven excerpts evoking major scenarios in the saga. Thanks to our sponsors.

Wagner began sketching ideas for the libretto of Der Ring des Nibelungen in the revolutionary year of 1848. It eventually became a cycle of four operas, for which the Bayreuth Festspielhaus was built. The full cycle did not premiere until 1876, but Wagner had portions of it completed long before then, and selections from Acts I and III of the second of the four operas, Die Walküre (The Valkyrie), were first given on the same concert in Vienna at the end of 1862 as the early Meistersinger excerpts. Brünnhilde pleads with her father, asking that she at least be surrounded by a fire that would keep away all but the bravest of heroes. Wotan embraces his daughter for the last time, and kisses her eyes to sleep. His deeply affecting Farewell brings up loving memories as well as regrets in reflection on his struggle to undo the curse of the Ring that he himself incurred.
