Wagner: Tristan and Isolde / Segerstam, Millgram, Fassbender

Album Summary

>Wagner, Richard : Tristan und Isolde
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

With its plot derived from Arthurian legend, 'Tristan und Isolde' is considered by many to be the most harmonically daring and overtly sensual of Wagner's operas. From the famous opening 'Tristan Chord' to the overpowering harmonic resolution at the end of the Liebestod, this opera is remarkable for the hypnotic power, physical longing and intense emotion sustained for more than three hours.
