John Culshaw's writing is smooth, insightful, and easily readable to layman and professional musician alike. Along with the video of "The Golden Ring" and the recordings of Solti's conducting and the Vienna Philharmonic's playing, it's apparent that no recording of Wagner (or any other composer) will surpass these almost 60 year-old recordings. Ring Resounding is the kind of book that leaves you feeling a little bereft when it comes to an end. An absolutely apt title: both the recording and the book resound indeed.
