Wagner: Tristan und Isolde (Extended Excerpts) - Synek, Liebl, Tamassy, Misske; Kaufmann. Wiesbaden, 1961


Listen to a Sample:



  • This set is worth it for the super-human Isolde of Liane Synek, found here in pristine voice. She manages the extremes of this role with astonishing ease; capping the evening off with an exquisite Liebestod.
  • Karl Liebl is excellent as Tristan. It is a shame that there is not more of Act III.
  • Conductor Ludwig Kaufmann, a Wiesbaden regular, delivers a surprisingly insightful performance.


  • The set contains most of Synek's part with the exception of the opening of Act II.
