Alain Trudel, conductor

Wagner arr. Maazel – The Ring Without Words

Long before Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones became household names in pop culture, composer Richard Wagner created the story of The Ring of Nibelung where mortals and immortals searched for a magic ring with the power to grant dominion over all. Lorin Maazel’s wonderful arrangement makes it easy to enjoy the greatest moments from Wagner’s epic opera cycle—including the Ride of the ValkyriesMagic Fire Music, and Siegfried’s Rhine Journey!
