      And the full Ring from Sweden being broadcast these days..
      Stemme always impressive, but I’d say with maturity she’s pacing herself more than previously, escecially up there … All in all very impressive , almost all swedish cast( Dalayman,Cleveman, Lundgren etc ). I was not as crazy as everyone else about the young Sieglinde the other night ( Beskow , they say she is the new Nilsson/ Stemme) , but I’ll be the first one to admit I was wrong

        That Rheingold was a concert perf at their brand new hall. I started in the middle and was listening while doing chores :-P but I thought both Volle and Kränzle were wonderful!
        I haven’t checked Sweden ring but it sounds interesting. Thank you for the info!
        Prob I should add Nürnberg ring is also currently being covered by BR-Klassik -- just in case if anyone’s interested
