HD-Vinyls 24/96 (EMI/Angel) Richard Wagner – Tristan Und Isolde (Vickers, Ludwig, Karajan)


Many thanks to our friend from Lake Michigan for this gem
This is one of the most popular modern recordings of the opera though partly by default as there haven’t been many and the consensus is that the most recent ones lack the great singers of the past. It somewhat lags behind Böhm’s and Furtwängler’s in popularity and critical esteem though I think it’s nearly as good. Most of the criticism has been directed at the conducting. I’ll get to that but first I want to discuss the lead singers.
