Wagner: Tristan und Isolde - Nilsson, Neate, Meyer, Saedén, Rundgren, Brilioth; Varviso, Stockholm, 1966


Listen to a Sample:



  • Birgit Nilsson makes a triumphant home-coming as Isolde, nearly outdoing her performance in the legendary Bayreuth, 1966 performance.
  • She is well-paired with Kerstin Meyer's warm Brangäne.
  • The real revelation, however, is Silvio Varviso's idiomatic, and astonishingly detailed interpretation (although he does rush Nilsson through the climax of the Liebestod.)
  • The sound is very good.


  • Kenneth Neate gets through the role of Tristan, but that's about all you can say about his performance.
