Isoldens Liebestod – Schlußszene aus Richard Wagners Tristan und Isolde, S447

composer
1867
composer
1859; Tristan und Isolde

 
We have Liszt to thank for the title which has clung, with Wagner’s approval, to the last scene of Tristan. Of course, this would be the last opera that Liszt heard before his death, and it had been close to his heart from its inception. A short phrase taken from the second act duet introduces a transcription of Isolde’s Love-Death which manages to convey not just Wagner, but Liszt’s total admiration of the music which he thought to be the greatest of its time.
