STOKOWSKI conducts Wagner

NB: Due to the current pandemic CDs may take longer than usual to arrive.

"All through the three acts of Tristan is sounding the despair and ecstasy of love, but its supreme expression is in the garden scene of the second act and in the last scene of the third act ... This love music continues its overpowering eloquence when words cannot continue. It is the supreme and ultimate of the poetry of love." - Leopold Stokowski

Leopold Stokowski's 1940s NBC Symphony broadcasts continue to yield treasures, and this week we offer two of Stokowski's unique "symphonic syntheses" in this Wagner-only release, with arrangements from Die Walküre and Tristan und Isolde alongside the Siegfried Idyll and the prelude from Lohengrin, all presented in superb XR-remastered Ambient Stereo transfers from previously unheard high quality sources.
