"It is something of a miracle that a recording of Tristan and Isolde as accomplished as this one can emerge from a single concert performance. It is highly dramatic, tremendously well sustained and very well recorded."
- Gramophone

"... superb playing of the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, from which Janowski demands heroic efforts in speed and intensity ... soprano Nina Stemme is the ranking Isolde of our time; she has a beautiful voice and paces herself perfectly ..."
- BBC Music Magazine

"... run out and buy this Tristan ... the most 'alive,' dramatic, excitingly sung and conducted performance of the opera (since Karl Böhm's in 1973) ... it’s nearly that good in performance quality and the sonics are immeasurably better ... grabs one’s attention with its dramatic impetus ... listen to the third act. I’ve personally never heard anyone’s performance of Tristan sung this dramatically; it completely rivets you to the speakers and doesn’t let go ... a tremendous listening experience. Thus again I exhort you to acquire it ... this may become the Tristan you end up playing most often."
- Fanfare

Recorded live in concert in March 2012, this stunningly presented version of Wagner's Tristan und Isolde serves as a showpiece for conductor Marek Janowski, the Rundfunkchor Berlin and the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin. They are joined by several acclaimed vocalists, notably soprano Nina Stemme singing the role of Isolde.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
