Melchior and Flagstad: Tristan und Isolde

In their final live radio broadcast performance together, direct from the stage of the Metropolitan Opera in February 1941, Lauritz Melchior and Kirsten Flagstad are perhaps the finest Tristan and Isolde ever captured in a sound recording.

The performance, brilliantly conducted by Erich Leinsdorf is, despite the Met's traditional cuts, one of the all-time greats. And thanks to the discovery of a new, super high quality source, it can be heard and enjoyed as never before.

Painstakingly restored and XR-remastered for Pristine by Andrew Rose, who has breathed new life and vigour into this classic historic recording, prepare to be taken on a musical journey like no other: an essential addition to the collection of anyone who's ever loved the music of Wagner.
