Wagner: Tristan und Isolde (Highlights)
Wagner: Tristan und Isolde (Highlights) (Decca 442 8288)
SKU: 10145
Price:
AU $8.95

  
Label: Decca Cat. No.: 442 8288 Medium: CD No. Discs: 1

Sir Georg Solti's reading of Tristan und Isolde is one of the most thrilling experiences of this opera on record, moving from becalmed to frenzied. The prominence of the orchestral playing - and what playing from the Vienna Philharmonic - is explained by producer John Culshaw as being very clearly indicated in the score by Wagner, when he wanted the orchestra to engulf the voices. The substantial scenes from all three acts - here expertly extracted from an opera that is hard to 'excerpt' at the best of times - are bonused with two brief rehearsal extracts from the recording.

"Nilsson's gleaming voice was in its prime in 1960 and she sings Isolde with tireless concentration and an appreciable feeling for the various aspects of the part-frustration and revenge in Act 1, love's delirium in Act 2 and the elevation of the Liebestod" - Gramophone.

"knife-edged dramatic tension ... Birgit Nilsson responds superbly to Solti's direction ... Fritz Uhl is a really musical Heldentenor... the Kurwenal of Tom Krause and the King Marke of Arnold van Mill are both excellent ... The production has the usual Decca/Culshaw imaginative touch, and the recording matches brilliance and clarity with satisfying coordination and richness" *** The Penguin Guide to Opera on Compact Discs
