LEONARD BERNSTEIN’S:

TRISTAN UND ISOLDE

Sunday, Dec. 22th @ 1:00PM

at the Chairman’s Home

This is one of the most beautiful and brilliant recordings of Wagner´s Tristan und Isolde. Leonard Bernstein’s way of conducting this opera is unique and he makes orchestra and singers perform at their very best. The Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks was the only German orchestra with which Leonard Bernstein regularly collaborated. When he heard this performance, Karl Bohm said, “Bernstein has conducted Tristan und Isolde the way that Wagner intended it to be conducted .” Recorded in HD video and audio!
