This production of Wagner, Richard;âs Tristan und Isoldeâ was recorded during the Deutsche Oper Berlinâs great tour to Japan in 1993. Directed by GÃ¶tz Friedrich and conducted by Kout, JiÅÃ, this interpretation of the adulterous love between the Cornish knight Tristan and the Irish princess Isolde was a great success.Wagnerâs composition of Tristan und Isoldeâ was inspired by his love affair with Mathilde Wesendonck and the philosophy of Arthur Schopenhauer. Widely acknowledged as one of the peaks of the operatic repertoire, this music drama was notable for Wagnerâs advanced use of chromaticism, tonality, orchestral colour and harmonic suspension. The score of Tristan und Isoldeâ has often been cited as a landmark in the development of Western music. RenÃ© Kollo and Gwyneth Jones give brilliant performances and prove once again, why they belong to the worldâs best Wagner singers.
