Notes & Reviews:

"For the extremely satisfying Tristan of Kollo, and the magnificent, searing Isolde of Jones, this is a most welcome release of one of the greatest of all operas." - MusicalCriticism.com

Of all operas, perhaps the one that least needs ingenious extra musical assistance is Tristan, this aurally erotic work that speaks so vividly to the listener's inner eye. Wagner's score is simply more illustrative and sensuously pictorial than any series of stage pictures could be. This production with the Deutsche Oper Berlin stars Rene Kollo and Gwyneth Jones in the title roles. The program represents a historical milestone and document of highest value in the reception of Richard Wagner's Tristan und Isolde.

"There are no bounds to the longing, the desire, the bliss, and the anguish of love. The world, power, fame, glory, honor, chivalry, loyalty, friendship...all are swept away. Only one thing is left alive...yearning, yearning, insatiable desire....' - Richard Wagner
