Tristan und Isolde
Each opera was perfomed only once. All of the performances were recorded live, as well as all prior rehearsals of the choir and orchestra. Conductor Marek Janowski explicitly wished to avoid any publicity, since this is the best way to allow the music to stay true to its nature. This made it possible to accomplish such a superior recording.
The critics are unanimous in their praise for the entire set of recordings. Not only for Mr. Janowski, but also the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin and Rundfunkchor Berlin have attained international acclaim. And to this day, the soloists who took part in the project are still considered the best interpreters of Wagner.
Don’t miss the opportunity to own this jewel of a piece! The box consists of 32 SACDs plus one DVD, which contains an interview with Marek Janowski and some fragments from Gotterdammerung.
“It has spontaneity of something which has sunk so deeply into the performers' minds and souls that they can throw caution to the wind and still be accurate… unquestionably the finest modern traversal on disc of Wagner's achievement.”
