Wagner - Tristan und Isolde - De Sabata (1951)





Richard WAGNER (1813-1883)
Tristan und Isolde

Isolde – Gertrud Grob-Prandl (sop)
Tristan – Max Lorenz (ten)
Brangane – Elsa Cavelti (sop)
Kurwenal – Siegurd Bjorling (bar)
King Marke – Sven Nilsson (bass)

Coro e Orchestra del Teatro alla Scala
VICTOR DE SABATA

Live - Milan, 13th December 1951

"This famous recording of Tristan und Isolde has long been unavailable having first appeared on LP in 1978 and then on CD in 1989, both times on Italian labels, and both times hastily deleted. This new release on Archipel returns it to the catalogue where it takes its place as one of the most searing performances ever made of this opera. Even given the quite appalling sound – which requires considerable tolerance – it is easy to hear how de Sabata, that most electrifying of conductors, whips his orchestra into a veritable whirlwind of sound; only Böhm, at Orange, and Karajan at Bayreuth equal him".

Wonderful! I have a small speaker in a noisy environment, so the quality does not bother me. In fact, the "old time radio" sound enhances the experience, strangely.

However, the part3.rar file hangs up on download after 22meg, so I am missing a few tracks. Anybody else having this problem?

Thanks so much!

Guido said...

Hi Waldo.

An interesting solution... :-)))

About the download... is ok, now?

Invocation said...

Thank you! I think this recording has also been released by Myto around 2004.

Guido said...

Hi, dear Invocation!

You're right about Myto. I've not that box, but the audio quality must be more or less the same... unfortunately a poor source.
