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. Enhanced with fine playing from the Royal Swedish Orchestra.

'de Vlieger has approached his task with sympathy and no small degree of expertise...What makes this disc rather special, and of interest to more than just would-be Wagnerians who are allergic to voices, is the sheer quality of the interpretation and orchestral playing.' MusicWeb International

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The excerpts have in most cases been used without alterations; only occasionally has an essential vocal line been replaced by wind instruments.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.

For this orchestral arangement the Royal Swedish Orchestra takes its place on centre stage, to play music which has been part of its repertoire for close to 120 years. 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.
