Der Ring des Nibelungen - Explorations
"Bassett’s great gift, apart from his encyclopaedic knowledge of The Ring, is
his ability to make the seemingly complex approachable, to explain in the most
straightforward and appealing way what the Ring story is all about.
This is just the thing – and not only for those who are intimidated.
Even the most enthusiastic and informed of Ring followers will find fascinating
facts, perhaps even revelations – on this operatic journey of discovery in the
company of Bassett, Solti, singers (some legendary) and the Vienna Philharmonic
- Neville Cohn, OZartsreview
"The appeal lies in Bassett’s extraordinary, intelligent insights into a masterpiece."
- Martin Buzacott, Limelight
"A really fine preparation for Ring-goers or listeners, but much more,
it has excellent notes and essays."
- Barney Zwartz, The Age/Sydney Morning Herald
