Product Description

CD88555 Complete broadcast Bayreuth ring 1967.

This is an unusual upload as so far as I know it is the only time that one ring cycle was split between two conductors at Bayreuth. Bohm who had conducted the ring in 1965 and 1966, only conducted Walkure and Gotterdammerung, most likely because Philips was completing their recording of the entire cycle with those two operas, having recorded Rheingold and Siegfried in 1966. The entire cycle was broadcast by Bavarian Radio around the world and these uploads come from a Japanese relay by NHK. A comparison with the Philips issue of Walkure and GD shows that they evidently patched certain parts from rehearsals.

All except Rheingold are 256k stereo. The Rheingold is 160kps mono. There was a mistake with GD act 2, as the version in the zip file is flat. I reloaded it at the right pitch as a separate file.
