Wagner: Tristan und Isolde - Hillebrecht, Hopf, Stamm, Fonseca, Nöcker, Winkler; Wallat. Köln, 1974
Listen to a Sample:
- The transparent colors Hans Wallat evokes from the orchestra
- Hildegard Hillebrecht brings youthful intensity to the role of Isolde
- Veteran Hans Hopf delivers an impressive Tristan
- There are several drop-outs throughout the opera and the end of Act I from the moment they take the love potion is missing.
