Notes & Reviews:
Maestro Knappertsbusch is on the concentrated form of his 1951 Munich Tristan. ... all is steely strength, realised through dynamic sensitivity and spacious tempi... Any suspicion that Astrid Varnay... might sound too grand or "old" for Senta is soon swept away by her commitment to making voice and drama one. Her final pledge to the Dutchman ("Wohl kenn ich dich!") is genuinely frightening... Hermann Uhde is... noble, tortured, hugely moving, and duets well with Varnay. ...the new issue catches an exciting first night and is musically competitive in a catalogue strangely bare of exciting modern recordings.
Recording information: Festspielhaus Bayreuth (07/22/1955).
