Richard Wagner (1813–1883) - Tristan und Isolde – an orchestral passion Co-Production with Deutschlandfunk Kultur Symphonic compilation (1994) arranged by Henk de Vlieger (b. 1953) Staatskapelle Weimar Hansjörg Albrecht, conductor

This new recording from the Staatskapelle Weimar under Hansjörg Albrecht presents a rarely heard compilation of Richard Wagner’s themes from Tristan und Isolde, arranged for orchestra by Henk de Vlieger (b. 1953). This is Hansjörg Albrecht's follow-up Wagner recording to his album Der Ring Ohne Worte (OC1872). The Staatkapelle Weimar dates back to 1491, making it one of the oldest orchestras in the world, and one that is more than familiar with the works of Richard Wagner.
