    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.

    Gavin DeGraw - We Belong Together

    4:37

    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.

    Mild und leise
    wie er lächelt,
    wie das Auge

    seht ihr's Freunde?
    Seht ihr's nicht?
    Immer lichter
    wie er leuchtet,
    stern-umstrahlet
    hoch sich hebt?

    Seht ihr's nicht?
    Wie das Herz ihm
    mutig schwillt,
    voll und hehr
    im Busen ihm quillt?
    Wie den Lippen,
    wonnig mild,
    süßer Atem
    sanft entweht
    Freunde! Seht!
    Fühlt und seht ihr's nicht?
    Hör ich nur
    diese Weise,
    die so wunder
    voll und leise,
    Wonne klagend,
    alles sagend,
    mild versöhnend
    aus ihm tönend,
    in mich dringet,
    auf sich schwinget,
    hold erhallend
    um mich klinget?
    Heller schallend,
    mich umwallend,
    sind es Wellen
    sanfter Lüfte?
    Sind es Wogen
    wonniger Düfte?
    Wie sie schwellen,
    mich umrauschen,
    soll ich atmen,
    soll ich lauschen?
    Soll ich schlürfen,
    untertauchen?
    Süß in Düften
    mich verhauchen?
    In dem wogenden Schwall,
    in dem tönenden Schall,
    in des Welt-Atems
    wehendem All
    ertrinken,
    versinken
    unbewußt
    höchste Lust!

    Friedrich Nietzsche, who in his younger years was one of Wagner's staunchest allies, wrote that, for him, Tristan and Isolde is the real opus metaphysicum of all art... insatiable and sweet craving for the secrets of night and death... it is overpowering in its simple grandeur. In a letter to his friend Erwin Rohde in October 1868, Nietzsche described his reaction to Tristan's Prelude: I simply cannot bring myself to remain critically aloof from this music; every nerve in me is atwitch, and it has been a long time since I had such a lasting sense of ecstasy as with this overture. Even after his break with Wagner, Nietzsche continued to consider Tristan a masterpiece: Even now I am still in search of a work which exercises such a dangerous fascination, such a spine-tingling and blissful infinity as Tristan - I have sought in vain, in every art.

    Tristan und Isolde is an Opera 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.
    Wagner's composition of Tristan und Isolde was inspired by his affair with Mathilde Wesendonck and the philosophy of Arthur Schopenhauer. Widely acknowledged as one of the peaks of the operatic repertory, Tristan was notable for Wagner's advanced use of chromaticism, tonality, orchestral colour and harmonic suspension.

    The opera was profoundly influential among Western classical composers and provided inspiration to composers such as Gustav Mahler, Richard Strauss, Karol Szymanowski, Alban Berg and Arnold Schoenberg. Many see Tristan as the beginning of the move away from conventional harmony and tonality and consider that it lays the groundwork for the direction of classical music in the 20th century.

    It was only after Ludwig II of Bavaria became a sponsor of Wagner (he granted the composer a generous stipend and in other ways supported Wagner's artistic endeavours) that enough resources could be found to mount the premiere of Tristan und Isolde. Hans von Bülow was chosen to conduct the production at the Munich Opera, despite the fact that Wagner was having an affair with his wife, Cosima von Bülow.

    Wagner died at 50, with the premiers of Tristan, Meistersinger, the Ring, and Parsifal. Tristan marks his first fully mature work and establishes Wagner as a composer of the first rank. This digital recording from the early 1980s features a good, experienced cast. Rene Kollo is nearing the end of his effective career, but turns in a workmanlike performance, while Margaret Price sounds fresh and young. During his career, Maestro Kleiber has not competed with Herbert von Karajan or Georg Solti in the number of his recordings, but the quality of his output has always been among the best, and here he offers an exceptionally delicate orchestral reading.


    Tristan: René Kollo, Isolde: Margaret Price, Brangäne: Brigitte Fassbaender, König Marke: Kurt Moll, Kurwenal: Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Melot: Werner Götz, Seemann Eberhard Büchner, Hirte: Anton Dermota, Steuermann: Wolfgang Hellmich, Dresden Staatskapelle, Leipzig Radio Chorus

    Dame Margaret Price was persuaded to sing Isolde for a recording under German conductor Kleiber. The result, made up from several takes, is one of the most outstanding recorded Isoldes. Efforts to tempt Price to do Isolde on the stage, however, never came to anything. I'm not a long-distance runner, she insisted. I'll sing it to my dogs The Guardian

    Wagner - Prelude and Liebestod from Tristan Und Isolde

    18:47

    This is my personal vote for the greatest piece of music ever.
    The version here is by the Berlin Philharmonic, conducted by the late, great Herbert Von Karajan.

    The jewish coductor Daniel Barenboim aptly said: The music is bigger than the man. Anyone who dismisses Wagner's music on the basis of his views as a man, is missing something truly wonderful.

    I've chosen Karajan's version because he gets the tempo and the feel just right. Not too much vibratro here, which other conductors sometimes bring to the piece, making it sound too overwrought. He gets it spot on. A touch of vibrato, but he let's the notes speak for themselves, whilst the languid tempo evokes a mystical atmosphere to the piece.

    I hope you enjoy this wonderful music.
