Richard Wagner - Tristan und Isolde, Opera, WWV 90. Act I. Prelude Daniel Barenboim, Bayreuth Festival, 1983. This 1983 Bayreuth Festival film of Wagner's monumental ode to passion is considered by many to be the best available. It is the only production available on DVD to hold to anything like a conventional setting, and only takes a radical interpretation in the last moments of the final act. Wagner's music drama (he used the word 'handlung' or treatment) was inspired in part by the great mediæval romances by Gottfried von Strasbourg and his predecessors, Schopenhauer's philosophy, and his personal life's own reality-show level drama. Wagner's stated intention to write an opera based on the legend of Tristan and Isold, of whom he had read in the thirteenth century narrative poem by Gottfried von Strassburg, first appears in a letter to Franz Liszt of December 16, 1854. The earliest musical sketches date from December 1856, by which date Wagner had already completed the text for Der Ring des Nibelungen, as well as the music for Das Rheingold and Die Walküre, and through Act Two of Siegfried. Wagner had also completed three of his most important writings on the aesthetics of drama. The composition of Tristan und Isolde is entwined in a nexus of Wagner's personal and theoretical concerns. In August 1857, Wagner stopped work on the music for Siegfried, in order to set to work full time on Tristan because, as stated in his 1860 essay The Music of the Future, he wanted to compose an opera of more modest scale with a chance of being produced. The music-drama was completed in Lucerne in March 1859. Wagner's had also composed five songs to poems by Mathilde Wesendonck, his patron's wife, with whom he had become deeply infatuated, two of which he designated as studies for Tristan und Isolde. Wagner himself acknowledged that with the composition of Tristan, he transcended the musical and dramaturgical theories he set out in his earlier treatises. Indeed, the musical language of Tristan has long been acknowledged as the beginning of musical modernism. The harmonic language of Tristan, heaving as it does with prolonged courses of unresolved dissonances, not only enacts musically the sexual tension between the opera's two central characters, but also points to the liberation of dissonance from the constraints of tonality that Arnold Schoenberg and others in the twentieth century would champion. The Prelude to Tristan fully exemplifies Wagner's forward-looking approach to both harmony and the issue of musical form -- or, some would say, formlessness -- that operates centrally in his music-dramas. Alfred Lorenz argued in his 1924 study, The Musical Form of Richard Wagner's "Tristan und Isolde", that the opera's prelude and three acts consist of large-scale Bogen ("arch," e.g., ABA; Prelude-Act I, and Act Two) and Bar (e.g., AAB; Act Three) forms, and that the entire opera-prelude and all acts combined falls into a giant Bogen form. In 2000, Robert Bailey argued that the form of the Prelude to Tristan can be understood to unfold in cycles of repeating phrase units. The Prelude also unfolds Wagner's Leitmotif technique, in which instrumental music introduces central motives which correspond with characters and ideas. Wagner seems to have explored the implications of one of Tristan's central Leitmotif -- that consisting of four ascending chromatic pitches and introduced by the oboe in the opening measures of the Prelude -- in his song "Im Treibhaus," which was one of the five Wesendonck songs. Additionally, a strong connection exists between the music of the Act Two love scene of Tristan and that of another study for Tristan, Wagner's earlier Wesendonck song, "Träume."

Recording c. 1882 in the earlier cylinders, Bayreuth Festival. (Note: c. is the latin term "circa") in Wagner conducts Wagner: Tristan Und Isolde/Das Rheingold/Die Walküre, Grammophono. Part II Siegfried Wagner conducts Richard Wagner: https://youtu.be/jIyMBMTfyJg The phonograph was invented by Thomas Edison on July 18, 1877. His first successful recording and reproduction of intelligible sounds, achieved early in the following December, used a thin sheet of tin foil wrapped around a hand-cranked grooved metal cylinder. Thomas Edison had developed his tin-foil phonograph in 1878, and it made its way to Europe in that year. Phonograph cylinders are the earliest commercial medium for recording and reproducing sound. These hollow cylindrical objects have an audio recording engraved on the outside surface, which can be reproduced when they are played on a mechanical cylinder phonograph. Despite Wagner was ceptical about the sound machine, he was nevertheless not outside the thoughs of Thomas Edison. After he had been experimenting with his invention in 1878 by playing a recorded song backwards, he wrote: "the song is still melodious in many cases, and some of the strains are sweet and novel, but altoghether different from the song reproduced in the right way. Wagner wasn't the monopoly of the music of the future - I'm going into the machine composing business." Letter to Wiliam Preece, 19.II.1878. (The papers of Thomas A. Edison, Baltimore: John Hopkins University Press). Friedrich Nietzsche, who in his younger years was one of Wagner's staunchest allies, wrote that, for him, "Tristan and Isolde is the real opus metaphysicum of all art... insatiable and sweet craving for the secrets of night and death... it is overpowering in its simple grandeur". In a letter to his friend Erwin Rohde in October 1868, Nietzsche described his reaction to Tristan's Prelude: "I simply cannot bring myself to remain critically aloof from this music; every nerve in me is atwitch, and it has been a long time since I had such a lasting sense of ecstasy as with this overture". Even after his break with Wagner, Nietzsche continued to consider Tristan a masterpiece: "Even now I am still in search of a work which exercises such a dangerous fascination, such a spine-tingling and blissful infinity as Tristan - I have sought in vain, in every art." Tristan und Isolde is an Opera in three acts to a German libretto by the composer, based largely on the romance by Gottfried von Straßburg. Wagner referred to the work not as an opera, but called it "eine Handlung" (literally a drama). Wagner's composition of Tristan und Isolde was inspired by his affair with Mathilde Wesendonck and the Philosophy of Arthur Schopenhauer. Widely acknowledged as one of the peaks of the operatic repertory, Tristan was notable for Wagner's advanced use of chromaticism, tonality, orchestral colour and harmonic suspension. LIBRETTO Liebesnacht von Tristan und Isolde, zweiter Aufzug, zweite szene | "Love-Night" from Act 2, Scene 2 TRISTAN […] ohn' Erwachen, ohn' Erbangen, namenlos in Lieb' umfangen, ganz uns selbst gegeben, der Liebe nur zu leben! ISOLDE (wie in sinnender Entrücktheit zu ihm aufblickend) So stürben wir, um ungetrennt, - TRISTAN ewig einig ohne End', - ISOLDE ohn' Erwachen, - TRISTAN ohn' Erbangen, - BEIDE namenlos in Lieb' umfangen, ganz uns selbst gegeben, der Liebe nur zu leben! (Isolde neigt wie überwältigt das Haupt an seine Brust) BRANGÄNES STIMME (wie vorher) Habet acht! Habet acht! Schon weicht dem Tag die Nacht. […] BEIDE […] Hehr erhabne Liebesnacht! Wen du umfangen, wem du gelacht, wie wär' ohne Bangen aus dir er je erwacht? Nun banne das Bangen, holder Tod, sehnend verlangter Liebestod! In deinen Armen, dir geweiht, urheilig Erwarmen, von Erwachens Not befreit! Wie sie fassen, wie sie lassen, diese Wonne, Fern der Sonne, fern der Tage Trennungsklage! Ohne Wähnen sanftes Sehnen; ohne Bangen süss Verlangen; ohne Wehen hehr Vergehen; ohne Schmachten hold Umnachten; ohne Meiden, ohne Scheiden, traut allein, ewig heim, in ungemessnen Räumen übersel'ges Träumen. TRISTAN Tristan du, ich Isolde, nicht mehr Tristan! ISOLDE Du Isolde, Tristan ich, nicht mehr Isolde! BEIDE Ohne Nennen, ohne Trennen, neu Erkennen, neu Entbrennen; endlos ewig, ein-bewusst: heiss erglühter Brust höchste Liebeslust! (Sie bleiben in verzückter Stellung) [...]

Germany 1934 - Bayreuth Adolf Hitler - Richard Wagner Festspiele http://www.germanhistoryarchive.com/movie-archive.html http://www.germanhistoryarchive.com/photo-archive.html original unpublished footage World War II & Germany 1927-1945 https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLLEtu_bvreispSTeS_m08OcY8sC26bJVN The Bayreuth Festival (German: Bayreuther Festspiele) is a music festival held annually in Bayreuth, Germany, at which performances of operas by the 19th-century German composer Richard Wagner are presented. Wagner himself conceived and promoted the idea of a special festival to showcase his own works, in particular his monumental cycle Der Ring des Nibelungen and Parsifal. Performances take place in a specially designed theatre, the Bayreuth Festspielhaus. Wagner personally supervised the design and construction of the theatre, which contained many architectural innovations to accommodate the huge orchestras for which Wagner wrote as well as the composer's particular vision about the staging of his works. The Festival has become a pilgrimage destination for Wagner enthusiasts, who often must wait years to obtain tickets. In the 1920s, well before the rise of the Nazi Party, Winifred Wagner became a strong supporter and close personal friend of Adolf Hitler; her correspondence with Hitler has never been released by the Wagner family. She and other festival leaders were members of Nazi chief ideologue Alfred Rosenberg's Kampfbund für deutsche Kultur, which actively suppressed modernist music and works by "degenerate" artists. The festival maintained some artistic independence under the Third Reich. Ironically, Hitler attended performances that included Jewish and foreign singers, long after they had been banned from all other venues across Germany (including heldentenor Max Lorenz, married to a well-known Jewish woman). Winifred's influence with Hitler was so strong that Hitler even wrote a letter (at her behest) to anti-fascist Italian conductor Arturo Toscanini, begging him to lead the festival. Toscanini refused. From 1933 to 1942, the festival was conducted principally by Karl Elmendorff. It was under the Third Reich that the festival made its first break from tradition, abandoning the deteriorating 19th century sets created by Richard Wagner. Many protested at the changes, including prominent conductors such as Toscanini and Richard Strauss, and even some members of the Wagner family. In their view, any change to the festival was a profanation against "the Master" (Wagner). Nevertheless, Hitler approved of the changes, thus paving the way for more innovations in the decades to come. During the war, the festival was turned over to the Nazi Party, which continued to sponsor operas for wounded soldiers returning from the front. These soldiers were forced to attend lectures on Wagner before the performances, and most found the festival to be tedious. However, as “guests of the Führer”, none complained. opera Oper Lohengrin Geschichte Doku documentary Musik Opernhaus Tristan Isolde The Ring Meistersinger von Nürnberg Parsifal Der fliegende Holländer Tannhäuser Der Ring des Nibelungen Flying Dutchman Rienzi video youtube google

Peter Hofmann, Siegfried Vogel, Karan Armstrong, Leif Roar, Elizabeth Connell, Bernd Weikl, Directed for Stage by Götz Friedrich Chor der Bayreuther Fetsspiele; Orchester der Bayreuther Festspiele Woldemar Nelsson EuroArts presents this exclusive recording of Richard Wagners Opera Lohengrin live from the Bayreuth festival in 1982. Richard Wagner's three-act opera, an exquisitely lyrical piece, characterized by the composer's romantic vision of the individual's fight for freedom under an oppressive rule, has been described as Wagner's most Italianate opera This masterful and timeless interpretation by the famous opera director Götz Friedrich was filmed on the stage of the Festspielhaus in Bayreuth over a period of several days, but without audience, shortly before the start of the actual festival. In this way, undisturbed state-of-the-art filming was made possible within the limited space of the small 19th century auditorium and stage. The result is an intense, film-like rendering of one of the classic Bayreuth stagings with an ensemble of stars including Karen Armstrong and Bernd Weikl. The title-role is particularly suited to the dramatic and musical talents of Peter Hofmann, whose adoption of Wagnerian roles in the eighties before Parkinson disease forced his farewell from the stage - has been received with international and ongoing praise. He was the star of Wagner interpretation for more than a decade and this DVD pays tribute to the artists skills. http://www.naxos.com/catalogue/item.asp?item_code=2072028

A timelessly classical Parsifal from the 1998 Bayreuth Festival in a mystically poetic staging that exerts an unbroken fascination not least as a result of its expressive lighting effects. Under the direction of the great Wagner conductor Giuseppe Sinopoli, the four main roles are taken by Poul Elming, Linda Watson, Falk Struckmann and Hans Sotin -- one of the strongest line-ups in Bayreuth´s more recent history. "Giuseppe Sinopoli coaxed an outstanding performance from the Festival Orchestra and Chorus, throwing light on the elaborate score from an agreeable distance and investing the music with a meditatively flowing quality rather than the usual bombast" (Opernglas) Conductor: Giuseppe Sinopoli Cast:: Falk Struckmann, Matthias Hoelle, Hans Sotin, Poul Elming, Ekkehard Wlaschiha, Linda Watson
