Wagner's hugely-influential music-drama, Tristan und Isolde, dates from 1859 and was first performed in Munich in 1865. Subsequently, the Prelude to Act I and the concluding from Act III were joined together to bring the music to the concert hall. This arrangement attempts to carry the music one stage further from the domain of the larger professional orchestra with triple woodwind and horns and trumpets crooked in various keys, to the standard orchestra of double woodwind (minus the cor anglais and bass clarinet in A!), Horns in F and trumpets in Bb - and thereby making the work accessible to all. The essential orchestral flavours and colours have been preserved as far as possible, despite considerable and inevitable reorchestration. Tempi markings have been converted into Italian.
Duration: 12 minutes
