Notes & Reviews:

Wilhelm Furtwa¨ngler's early 1950s studio recording of Wagner's Tristan and Isolde on EMI / Columbia remains one of the finest on the market. Less well-known is this live recording from Berlin, 1947, arguably offering a better conducted performance from the baton-wielding maestro. Unfortunately, Act I is lost. This release, re-mastered from the original masters of Act II and III in very good sound, all adds up to a very precious document indeed! Starring Ludwig Suthaus as Tristan and Erna Schlu¨ter, a renowned Elektra who also sang Mozart, Beethoven and Verdi, as Isolde.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
The orchestra plays very well under FurtwSngler. It sounds like the musical forces were in pretty good shape.
