That's the Way the Cookie Crumbles

Note: This post was inspired by AMG blogger Stephen Eddins. Read his excellent work here.

Tooling around on AMG today I read a post by Stephen Eddins about the Westminster Ring, a lesser recording of the famous Wagner cycle conducted by Hans Swarovsky. I've never heard this particular recording of the cycle, so I can't attest to its quality. However, the album covers, photographed by Christopher Whorf and presented below for your entertainment, are fascinating.

Enjoy, folks.
Der Ring des Nibelungen: How many Rhinemaidens do you need to screw in a lightbulb?
Das Rheingold: Uh...three, I think.
Die Walküre Now mit Fahrfegnugen!
Siegfried: Brought to you by Pearle Vision®
Götterdämmerung: That's the Way the Cookie Crumbles.

I like cookies!

Critical Thinking in the Cheap Seats

My Photo

Since 2007, Superconductor has grown from an occasional concert or CD review to a near-daily publication covering classical music, opera and the arts in and around NYC, with excursions to Boston, Philadelphia, and upstate NY. I am a freelance writer living and working in Brooklyn NY. And no, I'm not a conductor.
