Richard Wagner - Tristan und Isolde

Here, Karl Böhm conducts the Bayreuther Festspielorchester in a wonderful, fiery performance of Wagner's most popular opera.

Richard Wagner was a German late Romantic composer whose work was highly influential to many composers, like Mahler and Strauss. Listening to this epic musical drama (better yet, seeing the opera) is so much better than watching the lame movie.
