Tristan und Isolde: Prelude & Liebestod

Alessandra Marc (soprano)


Themes of love and passion dominate these orchestral excerpts from Wagner’s music dramas. The legend of Tannhäuser contrasts the sensual allure of Venus with the ideals of courtly love and religious devotion. Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg pits an inspired but rash young singer against the traditions of the old masters in a song competition, with a beautiful girl as the prize. Tristan und Isolde, based on one of the world’s great love stories, is considered Wagner’s most revolutionary work, seamlessly blending themes of love and death into a shattering apotheosis. Gerard Schwarz’s other selections of Wagner excerpts can be found on 8572767 and 8572768.

“Marc is an excellent singer, thankfully free of the gusty tone production which afflicts too many Wagnerian sopranos today. She sings with expressiveness, delicacy and a real feeling for the text” MusicWeb International, October 2012

World-famous Italian conductor, Arturo Toscanini (1867-1957), conducts here the NBC Symphony Orchestra, of which he was the first music director from 1937-1954. Showcased are historic recordings of works by Richard Wagner (1813-1883), dating from the late 1940s/early 1950s and recorded in the main in Carnegie Hall, New York. Featured soloists are American soprano Helen Traubel and leading Wagner tenor of the time, Danish/American singer, Lauritz Melchior.

“The majority of the tracks are purely orchestral – some of them, like the wonderfully intense, incredibly slow account of the prelude to the first act of Parsifal, and the stark, savage account of Siegfried's funeral march from Götterdämmerung, are very striking indeed...The digital transfers are wiry but adequate, though some pre-echo and moments of unsteadiness remain.” The Guardian, 20th June 2013 ***

Legendary conductor Leopold Stokowski was one of the major influences on the American concert scene in the 20th century. He was however a musician who divided opinion to the extent that some called him a genius whilst others considered him to be nothing short of a charlatan. The collection presented in this 10-CD box includes music from the late romantic period (Liszt and Wagner) right through to giants of the 20th century like Shostakovich and Stravinsky. It covers the latter part of Stokowski’s career and shows that he had lost none of his freshness and musical temperament even in his seventh decade.

Born in London to a Polish father and Scottish mother, and educated in Berlin, Munich, Paris and London, Leopold Stokowski became not only a famous conductor but also the first maestro of the baton to become a genuine media star. He became particularly well known for his acoustic experiments, which included different placements of orchestral musicians, and arrangements of classical works, especially those of J.S. Bach. His unconditional support for contemporary composers and the quality of the recordings that he left to posterity have confirmed Stokowski as one of the most eminent interpreters of his century.
