Catalogue Number: 03M044
Description: We have here a 52-minute "synthesis" of Tristan from 1994 which follows the opera, in chronological order while concentrating on the solos and accompanying motifs of the two main characters, intended to produce a long symphonic poem which logically progresses from beginning to end. After his Ring synthesis and last June's Parsifal - An Orchestral Quest, de Vlieger still has one for the Meistersinger which will presumably be next). Royal Scottish National Orchestra; Neeme Järvi. SACD hybrid
