How much time does it take you to listen to the whole Ring thing, a day or two? Or do you play selections?
The set contains four boxes. I listen to one box (4 CDs) at a time and slowly: meaning one box a day. I read the booklet while listening to the music. I recommend the hand of conductor Solti who is marvelous with the work of both Wagner and Mozart.
I do have a instrumental 'highlights' cd (cond. by Solti), it's great to listen to it every now and then, but I wonder if I would have the stamina to play the whole Ring. My thoughts start wandering if movies or music go on for a long time, but not as fast as when there is a work-related meeting
