Limited Deluxe 2CD + Blu-Ray Audio Edition!

Georg Solti's reading of 'Tristan und Isolde'  is among the most thrilling experiences of operas on record, moving from becalmed to frenzied. The evenness and strength of the cast in this recording is balanced with the brilliance of the Wiener Philharmoniker; with the productin given the revered Decca/Culshaw touch, and recorded with the renowned Decca clarity and richness.

The 3-CDs + Blu-ray Audio disc is in deluxe hardback presentation with "An introduction to the Opera and its Leitmotifs" and an essay by the recording's producer, John Culshaw, "Observations on the Characters, music and recording," illustrated with sketches of his 'imagined settings' for the recording.

This legendary recording is bonused with the rehearsal excerpts, "The Birth of an Opera," originally included in the first LP issue, providing a fascinating behind-the-scenes insight into the work to create the Decca Sonicstage.

"Nilsson's gleaming voice was in its prime in 1960 and she sings Isolde with tireless concentration and an appreciable feeling for the various aspects of the part-frustration and revenge in Act 1, love's delirium in Act 2 and the elevation of the Liebestod." GRAMOPHONE MAGAZINE
 
"Knife-edged dramatic tension... Birgit Nilsson responds superbly to Solti's direction... Fritz Uhl is a really musical Heldentenor… the Kurwenal of Tom Krause and the King Marke of Arnold van Mill are both excellent... The production has the usual Decca/Culshaw imaginative touch, and the recording matches brilliance and clarity with satisfying coordination and richness" - Penguin Guide To Opera On Compact Discs
