Ring Cycle

Der Ring des Nibelungen (The Ring of the Nibelung) is a cycle of four epic operas (or dramas to use the composer's preferred term) by the German composer Richard Wagner (1813–83).

I am enjoying Wagner's Ring Cycle way too much right now. Must be my ancient Nordic ancestors calling out from Valhalla.
Also I think just about everybody in the Ring Cycle is somehow related to Wotan. Opera is weird that way.

Getting psyched for this year's Ring Cycle from Bayreuth -- coming in July! What does this mean? Listening to various excerpts from various orchestras and conductors. Up now is the recent Met Opera production -- a so-so production with some outstanding moments; however, the orchestra is magnificent (what a shock!) and the cast is consistent and, in many roles, stellar.
Wow did make a mess out of Beowulf and the Ring Cycle. Didn't see the last season until now.

Heard about the Ring Cycle that won't use live musicians, but a 'digital orchestra'. Object? Tell them!
Maestro James Levine is one of the most accomplished, sophisticated, and versatile classical musicians of our time. For decades, he's been a virtuoso pianist, conductor, and opera music director, with many recordings to his credit. I for one hold special admiration for his 4-album, 12 or so CD set of Wagner's Ring Cycle from mid-1990's. Here's his interview with Charlie Rose, 10.17.2013, ca. 55 mins.
A New American Ring Begins Written By The Wagnerian on Monday, 2 June 2014 | 8:22:00 pm A bold new project is about to start in Hartford, CT this summer as Hartford Wagner Festival launches the first part of what it says will eventually be annual Ring cycles. Beginning, logically enough, with Rheingold. While fully staged the production will attempt to reduce the usual high costs involved in producing a Ring cycle with the use of a "digital orchestra" In order to understand what this means we spoke to the festival's President/Artistic Director Charles M. Goldstein today to explain:have been developing the Digital Orchestra now for about 15 years and it is now “ready for prime time” as they say. My digital instruments come from the Vienna Symphonic Library and are basically from the players of the Vienna Philharmonic and other Viennese orchestras. The project begins with Sibelius Notation program in which I entered, by hand, all 137,000 measures of “Das Rheingold” note by note. Then the progr ...
Theft of motor cycle on Weston Street, occured on 6th June overnight. Bike is a BMW R2100 Vs Venture in white - if sighted please ring 101.
ring of Kerry cycle today 4 weeks! 180km, will have a pint & an ambulance waiting at molls for me lol
I was starting to feel like this is all a bit of a witch-hunt, so I thought it'd be interesting to look back through time and see how something like this Wagner Festival could have come into being. Mr. Goldstein has spent considerable efforts establishing his niche in ‘virtual opera’ over the years. For some time he ‘conducted’ the Sansvoix Digital Orchestra in a series of CDs of opera-minus-voices, marketed as “great for rehearsals or learning or just listening to the score.” remember coming across a Gilbert and Sullivan karaoke CD (though recorded with a real orchestra) years ago, and these kinds of things can be fun and useful for sing-a-longs, or preparing your part for performance in the absence of a full orchestra in your living room. According to an online profile Goldstein eventually mounted a fully staged production of Hansel and Gretel at a local school, using his Digital Orchestra (the newest version of which was again misleadingly described as “the glorious sounds of the Vienna S ...
And your argument could be used against every shoddy Ring cycle - in large houses - I have heard
Charles Goldstein: "The result is the ability to produce a “Ring” cycle at a fraction of the cost with a full live orchestra."
I'm too broke to afford a ring. Because I can't work in America. It's a vicious cycle, you see.
The other night I had a dream that Jerry Saltz and I were traveling in upstate New York in his car. He was taking me to an undisclosed location where he was going to pull out one of my teeth. He was going to do this as a favor to me. We stopped for coffee and he bought me a book of Paul Strand photographs. Later we were at a junk store and he was so excited because he purchased a set of Harley Davidson foot pegs that had an emblem of Wagner's The Ring Cycle stamped into them. Where is Freud when you need him? Today Jerry unfriended me on FB me for calling out his WWII D-Day thread as a glorification of war. At least I have my teeth.

Actually I don't...don't get me wrong as these are - in the main - stupendous recordings as Karajan's asethetic proclivities are a perfect match to the composer's. Here, however, is the problem...DG want's you to shell out over 100 dollars for 11 CD's that have all been reissued separately on regular rez compact disc that were down converted from 24 bit transfers of the original analogue tapes - and budget priced ones at that. If you are a Karajan/Richard Strauss fan, chances are you have them. The extra item is a single Blu Ray disc with 90% of the contents of all the preceding CDs onto a single BluRay and encoded at 24 bit 96khz...full high rez. Why would you re buy those low rez CDs or even mess with them when you can have it all on in full rez on a single BluRay? Effectively, they want you to shell out over a hundred bucks then for a single Blu Ray disc. Oh yes...there is a picture book replete I'm sure painfully posed and calculated photos of the maestro (he tried hard to look cool in every shot) an ...
Carly LOVED the pearl necklace...thank you again to the wonderful Dawn!! Also sporting the cycle ring!😜
life update for this past week: Thanks to my history professor I had the rare opportunity this past Tuesday to sit-in on a dress rehearsal for a world premiere of a piece that's over 100 years old and (it premiered Thursday! and I might get a recording of it!); Wednesday I also saw a quintet comprising of a violin, accordion, cello, and bass perform pieces by Wolf, Wagner and a few others one night this week!; Just last night I was able to get standing room tickets to Siegfried - one of Wagners Ring Cycle operas! I didn't know anything walking into it until a friend told me it was 5 hours yes I stood for 5 hours and it was worth every second; today I just had my second lesson at the state opera and I still can't get over the fact that I've walked through the stage door twice within one week! After my lesson I had to book it to a train to Budapest with a few people and we made it with time to spare! So with that my friends and family, I am off to spend a weekend in Budapest! Auf Wiedersehen!

1876 Tchaikovsky completes Swan Lake. It opens in 1877 at Moscow's Bolshoi Theatre. Wagner's The Ring Cycle is performed in full at the Bayreuth Festival. The opera house was built to accomodate Wagner's works. Johannes Brahms completes his First Symphony. Twenty years in the making, the symphony received mixed reviews but would become one of the most popular ever written.

Dear Yeshua, YHWH, I say my prayer unto you before I sleep tonight, send down my Guardian Angel? She could put on an appearance of Dakota Fanning, besides she and I have the same Guardian Angel protecting us from dark forces who looms over Persia. I get the fact that it will be difficult because of the War in Heaven right now, your angels are trying to get through but it's difficult because of what's holding ya'll back. But i'll be waiting and Dakota will be waiting, Prophet Daniel waited for 21 days, until Gabriel reaches him and told Daniel that they were in trouble, the fallen ones were around and kept them from coming. Michael finally came and said we can now talk. I will be asleep with my headphones on, listening to neo-soul or Wagner's Ring Cycle until you arrive tonight. The chair at the study table is always accepted for her when she arrives. :)
Besides reading a mountain of books and learning a mountain of skills, research for my ride across America entails watching a lot of stuff, spanning from an old TV show (Northern Exposure) to Wagner's Ring Cycle. And then of course I have my classes and my teaching assistantship and a girl's gotta eat and do laundry. Time! I need more time! And friends to watch things with.
Lots of opera companies are trying brand new productions of old classics (i.e. The Met's new Ring Cycle). What do you think about new vs. old when it comes to the operatic standards?
I'm glad to finally realize that Wagner's Ring Cycle is the foundation that The Lord of the Rings trilogy is based off of. This is nice. Life is nice.
I just read a review of Richard Wagner by The Star's William Littler (Sat. Jan. 26, 2013, p. E7). Littler quotes a Viennese musical critic, Eduard Hanslick, who wrote in 1868 that "the Prelude to 'Tristan und Isolde' reminds me of the old Italian painting of a martyr whose intestines are slowly unwound from his body on a reel." My sentiments precisely! Or rather. my objection to Wagner is that he was a frightful anti-Semite; hence, his music was beloved of the Nazis. I cannot listen to the "Ring Cycle" without imagining SS officers jack-booting through the countryside. So today, let's celebrate Mozart, the 'gift of God': truly 'Amadeus.'
Remember when the music teacher rolled her cart into your classroom? She exposed me to Vienna waltzes, the William Tell overture and to Peter and the Wolf. Last night I saw 1/2 of Act 1; all of Act 3 and 4 of Wagner's Ring Cycle. I love Education!
