Tristan und Isolde (CD) - Gould, Stemme
Composer: Richard Wagner
Conductor: Marek Janowski
Stephen Gould
Nina Stemme

The fifth release in the new Wagner Edition, comprising all ten major operas performed by the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester and Chor with Marek Janowski, proves to be as stunning and fascinating of character as each of the previous installments. The project is unique in being the first edition of Wagner’s operas with the same musical forces. A phenomenal achievement.

Tristan und Isolde

World premiere: Munich Court Theater, 1865. Wagner’s breathtaking meditation on love and death holds a unique place in the opera world. Its music has astounded, infuriated, and inspired audiences since it was first heard, and the title roles are acknowledged as among the most extraordinarily demanding in opera. The vocal challenges, the sumptuous symphonic scale of the orchestral writing, and the mystical nature of the story, with its opportunities for creative visual design, make this awe-inspiring work a phenomenon of the repertory.
