Wagner: Tristan und Isolde CD (Antonio Pappano)

'Domingo gives us a performance of Tristan, carefully studied, heroically sung, sympathetically interpreted, that truly crowns his career as a tenor and a recording artist. Even more remarkable is the Isolde of Nina Stemme. Her strong, dark-hued, vibrant tone allied to her meaningful enunciation of the text is something to wonder at. Over all presides the alert and commanding Pappano' Gramophone
