Katharina Wagner, the great-granddaughter of Richard Wagner, is currently director of the Bayreuth Festival, making this recording even more special.. Tristan und Isolde was first performed in 1865 and provided inspiration to many composers including Mahler, Strauss, Szymanowski and Berg. It is widely acknowledged as one of the peaks of the operatic repertoire, and has been performed regularly since its premiere.

This production, by renowned director Christoph Marthaler, stars leading Wagner exponents Robert Dean Smith and Iréne Theorin in the title roles, supported by the Bayreuth Festival Chorus and Orchestra conducted by Peter Schneider.

The press had only good things to say about this performance: ``It`s hard to know where to point the awards finger first in such a complete ensemble performance.... Musically everything is fine under the super-experienced Peter Schneider... Despite the ferocious competition, absolutely unmissable. (Gramophone) Peter Schneider conducted with real feeling for the score and the prelude to the first act stole upon the ear with the magic of Bayreuths amazing acoustics. (The Stage)
