Wagner: Die Walkure Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

This Walküre exploits visuals as no other Ring in recent memory, and I'm happy to report that this Unitel Classics C Major release, encoded via AVC with a 1080i 1.78:1 image, supports that visual acuity pretty much perfectly. There are so many incredible moments throughout the four hours of this opera that it seems unfair to single any out, but rest assured that this piece has a full and robust palette, at least in terms of the projections. These can range from a sort of fluorescent green to a brilliantly fiery red. Stage lighting often follows the hue cues of the projections, and so you will see faces bathed in deep ruddy tones or cooler blues and purples. All of this is rendered beautifully on the Blu-ray. Black levels are absolutely solid, and contrast is strong throughout. There are some minor stage lighting issues, when faces are momentarily obscured, but that's not the fault of anything on the Blu-ray. This is a top flight image and a real delight to watch.


Wagner: Die Walkure Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Zubin Mehta mentored this production starting several years ago, and as he confesses in the Making of documentary included with Das Rheingold, he's been preparing to conduct the Ring cycle since the early 1950's, and that dedication pays off stunningly in this gorgeous performance, one which has some surprising tempi (as noted above), but which is strong, muscular and both aggressive and lyrical in equal measure. Luckily this Blu-ray's DTS HD-MA 7.1 mix picks it all up with really astonishing clarity. There were all sorts of little details that jumped out in this recording, from the exquisite figures of the celli to the bombastic brass calls that act as precursors to Siegfried's horn call in later episodes. Balance is for the most part exceptional, with all voices being clearly heard. Surround channels are utilized effectively to impart a near perfect hall ambience. The bulk of the solo singing is front and center, but group choral work spills into the side channels, and surrounds are used quite effectively for offstage moments such as the Valkyrie call and responses. I rarely give 5 star ratings to sound, probably due to some ideal I'm imagining, but I've given this offering 5 stars and I feel it firmly deserves them.
