    And, coming from a high school, it's likely hardly ever been listened to!

    Thus completes my Karajan Ring cycle I have a complete Barenboim too, in addition to Solti's Rhinegold & Gotterdammerung, and Haitink's Siegfried. I might give a try to the esteemed Leinsdorf Walkure as another single, or round out the Solti, but that's another day. For now I'm taking a bit of a purchasing break to enjoy my existing collection now.
