Das Rheingold

The musical direction of Péter Halász knows how to accord the same importance to the words, which are so essential in this founding prologue, as to the notes without neglecting the symphonic occasions slipped in here and there by Wagner to move the orchestra forward. From the meaningful E flat major at the beginning until the monumental Walhalla music at the end, the orchestral pâté is eloquent and dense without being cloying, the flawless Badische Staatskapelle always appropriates the narration.
