Gramophone Magazine

“There were no contemporary Isoldes to better Flagstad’s any more than there was a contemporary Hamlet to outshine Gielgud’s”

Penguin Guide

2010

**/*

“Furtwängler's concept is spacious from the opening Prelude onwards, but equally the bite and the drama are vividly conveyed, matching the nobility of Flagstad's portrait of Isolde...It stands among Furtwängler's finest memorials, still unsurpassed by later versions in its spacious concentration and intensity.”
