    Default WANTED: Tristan und Isolde - Solti on Decca

    Hi all,

    Been trying to find a copy of this for a while and though it wouldn't do any harm to ask here

    So if anyone has a copy they wish to sell I'd be most grateful if they'd let me know.

    I know it's not held in the highest regard, but I've got all the rest of the Solti Wagner recordings on CD and would like to be able to complete the set.

    It's the version that's on display here and not the earlier version:

    Thanks for your time.
    Andy

    It appears to be discontinued in CD format. However, you can download it from iTunes.

    If you follow that link, you can download in the lossless FLAC format. The download will be about 1.5 GB in size though. So you need the bandwidth and disc space for it. The sound quality will be identical to purchased CDs (if not a bit better).

    For the libretto go to:

    http://imslp.org/

    and download the full orchestral score.

    DO NOT download from iTunes as they only ever give you 256 kbs bit rate MP3s (good only for teenie boppers listening to pop music). Even the MP3 option from the Universal/Decca site gives you a 320 kbs bit rate file - better if still not really acceptable. These lossy files are your audio equivalents of JPEG files cut down in size:



    BTW I should mention that the Universal (DG/Decca) server is playing up and I got an email from support saying that they need to fix things before you can download files from them. I am sitting in limbo with some purchases.
