tristan und isolde – live from bayreuth (1976)

After one of my Twitter friends mentioned the Bulgarian tenor Spas Wenkoff on Friday, I rummaged through my iTunes playlists to see if I had any recordings of this relatively obscure singer. The only thing that turned up was a live 1976 Bayreuth performance of Tristan und Isolde under the baton of Carlos Kleiber, with Catarina Ligendza as Isolde, Yvonne Minton as Brangäne, Karl Ridderbusch as Marke, and Donald McIntyre as Kurwenal. Rounding out the cast are Heribert Steinbach (Melot), Heinz Feldhoff (the Steersman), and Heinz Zednik (the Shepherd).

I’m also providing links to Rapidshare for anyone interested in downloading all or part of the recording.
