Looking back at Tristan und Isolde twenty years after its composition, Wagner told his wife Cosima: ‘My model was Romeo and Juliet – nothing but duets!’ He was invoking Bellini’s opera I Capuleti e i Montecchi, which he had conducted many times as a young man. Indeed, there had been much in the Italian master’s legacy that had impressed the young Wagner, including the ‘long, long, long melodies’ that Verdi described, and the technique of melodic sequence in which a phrase is repeated with rising pitch and heightened effect. The erotic potential of such procedures is famously exploited in the ‘night of love’ in Act II of Tristan und Isolde. And while this might well claim to be Wagner’s best-known duet, this innovative 2CD set, compiled by Australia’s Wagner expert Peter Bassett (who also contributes the notes) brings together a collection of dialogues, musical conversations and duets from the major Wagner operas.

The recordings are among the finest ever made. The singers are a Who’s Who of great names from the sixties, seventies and eighties – Fischer-Dieskau, Janowitz, Vickers, Thomas, Price, Kollo… with conductors like Karajan, Kleiber and Jochum directing these revelatory performances. The breadth and diversity of the emotion on this double album is matched by the generous playing times: more than two hours and forty minutes of music on a 2CD set.

Wie Aus Der Ferne Längst Vergang'ner Zeiten

Das Süße Lied Verhallt

Grüß Gott, Mein Junker

Grüß Gott, Mein Evchen!

Geliebter, Sag, Wo Weilt Dein Sinn?

Dir Töne Lob! Die Wunder Sei'n Gepriesen

Ach! Ach! Tiefe Nacht! Wahnsinn!

Du Siehst, Das Ist Nicht So

Wotan! Gemahl! Erwache!

Schläfst Du, Gast?

Winterstürme Wichen Dem Wonnemond

Du Bist Der Lenz

O Süßeste Wonne! Seligstes Weib!

War Wälse Dein Vater

Siegmund, Den Wälsung, Siehst Du, Wib!


So Tatest Du, Was So Gern Zu Tun Ich Begehrt

Nicht Streb, O Maid, Den Mut Mir Zu Stören

Leb Wohl, Du Kühnes, Herrliches Kind

Ewig War Ich

Dich Lieb' Ich: O Liebtest Mich Du!

Lachend Muß Ich Dich Lieben

Zu Neuen Taten, Teurer Helde

Mehr Gabst Du, Wunderfrau, Als Ich Zu Wahren Weiß

Schläfst Du, Hagen, Mein Sohn?

O Sink Hernieder, Nacht Der Liebe

Einsam Wachend In Der Nacht

Lausch, Geliebter!

Doch Unsre Liebe, Heisst Sie Nicht Tristan Und - Isolde?

So Starben Wir

Rette Dich, Tristan!

Tatest Du's Wirklich?
