    Karajan's Ring is something special - superbly conducted and played by the BPO. Alright it is under cast in places but who cares as the main attraction of Wagner imo lies in the orchestra. So my choice is Karajan - he brings me nearest to loving this music rather than just admiring it.
    Karajan then.......................

    For the Ring on DVD, best one is Boulez:

    What about postponing the deadline a bit? Maybe someone else would join for a Ring DVD vote.
    Your original post was clear, but could it be that somehow people were assuming it was for CD only? At least this is what I thought.
