Wagner - Tristan und Isolde - Bayreuth 1974 - Carlos Kleiber







"Magic happens as Kleiber conducts with fire, unearthing little nuances that others throw away, always in the interest of the piece at large. For the Kleiber-Tristan experience, this is the recording to get..." -Jens F. Laurson, Ionarts.org

As all collectors lament, recordings of the late, great conductor Carlos Kleiber are far too few. Those that exist are often among the greatest ever made. Kleiber made a studio recording of Tristan and Isolde, but this live performance fromLudwig and Malvina Schnorr von Carolsfeld as Tristan and Isolde Bayreuth in 1974 is generally considered to be superior. Some of the soloists are unsurpassed in their roles, and the conducting is perhaps the best one will ever hear.

# Performer: Catarina Ligendza, Donald McIntyre, Heinz Feldhoff, Heinz Zednik, Helge Brilioth, et al.
# Orchestra: Bayreuth Festival Orchestra
