    Tristan und Isolde - End of Act 3 - Liebestod

    15:01

    Enthralling and emotionally devastating conclusion to Wagner's Tristan und Isolde.

    The acclaimed 1995 Bayreuth production by Heiner Müller, conducted by Daniel Barenboim with fire and sensitivity. Siegfried Jerusalem and Waltraud Meier were the Tristan and Isolde of choice throughout the decade, and were at the height of their interpretive powers. Müller and stage designer Erich Wonder have compressed the monumental story into a clear and fascinating geometry of love, creating highly evocative spaces through projections of colors and forms.

    We belong together
    Like the open seas and shores
    Wedded by the planet force
    We've both been spoken for

    The hammer may strike, be dead on the ground
    A nail to my hand, a cross on his crown
    We're done if we're undone
    Finished if we are incomplete
    As one we are everything
    We are everything we need

    We belong together
    Like the open seas and shores
    Wedded by the planet force
    We've both been spoken for

    What good is a life, with no one to share
    The light of the moon, the honor of a swear
    We can try to live the way of which you speak
    Taste the milk of your mother earth's love
    Spread the word of consciousness you see
    We are everything we need

    We belong together
    Like the open seas and shores
    Wedded by the planet force
    We've both been spoken for

    All this indecision
    All this independent strength
    Still, we've got our hearts on save
    We've got our hearts on save

    Someday when you're lonely
    Sometime after all this bliss
    Somewhere lost in emptiness
    I hope you find this gift...
    I hope you find this gift...
    I hope you find this gift.

    Richard Wagner - Love Duet from Tristan & Isolde O sink hernieder, Nacht der Liebe

    26:03

    - Composer: Wilhelm Richard Wagner (22 May 1813 -- 13 February 1883)
    - Orchestra: Philharmonia Orchestra
    - Conductor: Wilhelm Furtwängler
    - Soloists: Ludwig Suthaus (tenor), Kirsten Flagstad (soprano)
    - Year of recording: 1952 (studio)

    Love duet from opera 'Tristan & Isolde' (Act II), O sink hernieder, Nacht der Liebe, written in 1857-1859.

    Tristan und Isolde (Tristan and Isolde, or Tristan and Isolda, or Tristran and Ysolt) is an opera, or music drama, in three acts by Richard Wagner to a German libretto by the composer, based largely on the romance by Gottfried von Straßburg. It was composed between 1857 and 1859 and premiered in Munich on 10 June 1865 with Hans von Bülow conducting. Wagner referred to the work not as an opera, but called it eine Handlung (literally a drama. a plot or an action), which was the equivalent of the term used by the Spanish playwright Calderón for his dramas.

    The Love Duet from Act II:
    The lovers, at last alone and freed from the constraints of courtly life, declare their passion for each other. Tristan decries the realm of daylight which is false, unreal, and keeps them apart. It is only in night, he claims, that they can truly be together and only in the long night of death can they be eternally united (O sink' hernieder, Nacht der Liebe). During their long tryst, Brangäne calls a warning several times that the night is ending (Einsam wachend in der Nacht), but her cries fall upon deaf ears. The day breaks in on the lovers as Melot leads King Marke and his men to find Tristan and Isolde in each other's arms. Marke is heart-broken, not only because of his nephew's betrayal but also because Melot chose to betray his friend Tristan to Marke and because of Isolde's betrayal as well (Mir - dies? Dies, Tristan - mir?).

    When questioned, Tristan says he cannot answer to the King the reason of his betrayal since he would not understand, he turns to Isolde, who agrees to follow him again into the realm of night. Tristan denounces that Melot has fallen in love with Isolde too. Melot and Tristan fight, but, at the crucial moment, Tristan throws his sword aside and allows Melot to severely wound him.

    On this recording:
    - Furtwängler himself was very pleased with it, which wasn't normally the case with studio recordings. Schwarzkopf and Legge said that Flagstad couldn't reach the high notes anymore so that she (Schwarzkopf) 'lent' her the notes. That means Schwarzkopf sang them for Flagstad in this recording, at least that's what Schwarzkopf wrote down in her memoirs. We can doubt her claim however, because it's not clear if they could record it so well in those days that one could hardly hear the difference. It was quite embarrassing anyway for Flagstad when she heard about (or read in the newspapers) these rumours.

    Tristan und Isolde Melchior Flagstad Janssen Beecham 1937
    Overture probably cond. by Reiner. Best, clearest sound, best singing, best conducted Tristan, available for short time on Grammophono. Different from EMI and Archipel releases. There were two performances of Beecham's Tristan recorded, but numerous hodge-podge releases, with questionable provenance. There are several online essays that discuss the confusion surrounding the legendary Beecham Tristan. This is the best recording of this opera that I know of. Throughout we hear Herbert Janssen's sympathetic Kurwenal and the authoritative Brangäne of Margarete Klose.

    O sink hernieder - The Love Duet from Act II of Tristan and Isolde - part 1 of 2

    One interesting note on this recording - not only is Flagstad Isolde, but from 5:18 to 7:40 she is also singing the offstage part of Brangaene (this is a studio recording rather than a live performance). So this document is unique. It is the only recording of Flagstad as Brangaene.

    Nina Stemme: Wagner - Tristan und Isolde, Liebestod

    6:42

    Nina Stemme (born May 11, 1963 in Stockholm) is an opera singer known for her warm, solid spinto soprano voice, with some qualities of a dramatic soprano. She sang in two singing competitions, Operalia, The World Opera Competition and Cardiff Singer of the World. As winner of Operalia in 1993, Stemme was invited by Placido Domingo, founder of Operalia, to appear with him in a concert at La Bastille (1993); the same concert also took place on January 1, 1994, in Munich. Since her operatic debut as Cherubino in Cortona, Italy, Stemme has appeared with many opera companies, including the Royal Swedish Opera Stockholm, the Vienna State Opera, Semperoper Dresden, Geneva, Zürich, Teatro San Carlo Naples, Gran Teatre del Liceu Barcelona, the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, the Metropolitan Opera New York, and San Francisco Opera, as well as at the Bayreuth, Salzburg, Savonlinna, Glyndebourne and Bregenz festivals. Her roles include Rosalinde, Mimi in La bohème, Cio-Cio-San in Madame Butterfly, Tosca, Manon Lescaut, Suor Angelica, Euridice, Katerina in Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk, the Countess in Le nozze di Figaro, Marguerite, Agathe, Marie, Nyssia (König Kandaules), Jenůfa, Marschallin, Eva, Elisabeth, Elsa, Senta, Sieglinde, Elisabeth in Tannhäuser and Isolde. This last brought her critical acclaim at Glyndebourne Festival Opera in 2003, on disc for EMI Classics with Plácido Domingo, Antonio Pappano and the chorus and orchestra of the Royal Opera, Covent Garden released in 2005 and most recently at the Bayreuth Festival in 2005 and again in 2006. In 2007 Stemme returned in the role of Isolde to Glyndebourne Festival Opera where she first made her debut in the role...


    Lyrics & English Translation

    Mildly and gently,
    how he smiles,
    how the eye
    he opens sweetly
    Do you see it, friends?
    Don't you see it?
    Brighter and brighter
    how he shines,
    illuminated by stars
    rises high?
    Don't you see it?
    How his heart
    boldly swells,
    fully and nobly
    wells in his breast?
    How from his lips
    delightfully, mildly,
    sweet breath
    softly wafts
    Friends! Look!
    Don't you feel and see it?

    Do I alone hear this melody,
    which wonderfully and softly,
    lamenting delight,
    telling it all,
    mildly reconciling
    sounds out of him,
    invades me,
    swings upwards,
    sweetly resonating
    rings around me?
    Sounding more clearly,
    wafting around me!
    Are these waves
    of soft airs?
    Are these billows
    of delightful fragrances?
    How they swell,
    how they sough around me,
    shall I breathe,
    Shall I listen?
    Shall I drink,
    immerse?
    Sweetly in fragrances
    melt away?
    In the billowing torrent,
    in the resonating sound,
    in the wafting Universe
    of the World-Breath
    drown,
    be engulfed
    unconscious
    supreme delight!
