Wagner: Tristan und Isolde (Extended Excerpts) - Tinsley, Jung, Sotin, Walker, Szilagyi; Mund. Gelsenkirchen.


Listen to a Sample:



  • Although nearing the end of her career, Pauline Tinsley demonstrates that she is still an Isolde for the ages.
  • Manfred Jung brings a boyish quality to the role of Tristan. Incongruous as it might seem, it really works for the role and changes how you might think of the part.
  • Sandra Walker is an excellent Brangäne.
  • Hans Sotin is mesmerizing as King Marke.
  • Although these are excerpts, most of Tinsley's part is complete.


  • The sound is a bit distant.
