Tristan und Isolde

Synopsis

Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde is one of Bernstein’s finest opera recordings and still considered exemplary. It presents the top Wagner singers of the time: Peter Hofmann and Hildegard Behrens in the title roles as well as Yvonne Minton (Brangäne), Bernd Weikl (Kurwenal) and Hans Sotin (King Marke). In this semi-staged performance from the Herkulessaal in Munich, Bernstein conducts the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks.
