"I don’t think that I have ever witnessed a more perfect realisation of a Wagner opera than this superb Tristan und Isolde...[Ji?í B?lohlávek] is scrupulous with the score, and takes his time over it: the pauses and silences are immense and there is no factitious attempt to whip up excitement by speeding...a great and unforgettable occasion." (The Daily Telegraph)

Robert Dean Smith (Tristan); Iréne Theorin (Isolde);

"Peter Schneider conducted with real feeling for the score and the prelude to the first act stole upon the ear with the magic of Bayreuth’s amazing acoustics. Robert Dean Smith is now a fine Tristan with a really beautiful voice...Robert Holl made a moving King Marke, his magnificent bass nobly used. Some of the most beautiful singing came from Clemens Bieber’s Young Seaman at the beginning." (The Stage)
