“Lawrence Renes allows the music full time to breathe and expand, and he extracts superb playing from his orchestra. … For newcomers to the Ring this will be invaluable.” MusicWeb-International.com

Henk de Vlieger's orchestral arrangement of Richard Wagner's Ring Cycle boils down this
monumental music drama in four parts to a symphonic poem with a duration of a fifteenth of the original score. Unlike certain other arrangements, de Vlieger's follows the chronology of the operas so that the irrevocable process towards the twilight of the gods is clearly delineated. His method has been to select and link together the most important orchestral passages in the score, already closely interconnected as a result of Wagner’s leitmotif technique The excerpts have in most cases been
taken over without alterations; only occasionally has an essential vocal line been replaced by wind
instruments. Quite possibly, Wagner himself would have objected to the undertaking, but in fact one of his own strongly held convictions was that the text – or rather its content – should be continuously present, by means of the hidden-away orchestra exploring the dramatic background to the action presented on stage. With this orchestral arangement the turn has thus come for the Royal Swedish Orchestra to take its place on centre stage, in music which has been part of its repertoire for close to 120 years at the Royal Swedish Opera in Stockholm. (Some of that impressive history is reflected in the CD booklet through images from Ring productions past and present.) The conductor Lawrence Renes, recently named music director at the Royal Swedish Opera, has admired de Vlieger's
arrangement since it was premièred, in 1991, by his own mentor, the conductor Edo de Waart. The
arrangement has been recorded previously, but never before by a bona fide opera orchestra. The
result is indeed an adventure, as well as a sonic spectacular, and an excellent calling card for a fine
orchestra all too often relegated to the shadows.
