    Unsurprisingly, I have a great deal of affection for Callas's warmly feminine version in Italian, which she recorded for Cetra in 1949.
    Callas in Wagner is sui generis, fascinating on her own terms. The timbre, the interpretation, the language - together they put her performance into such a different category that I can't compare her with other Isoldes. Too bad her complete performance was never recorded (as far as we know).

    I'm very fond of many mentioned. I think Waltraud Meier in the conclusion to the Tristan DVD is hair raising. I love Norman in this:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPUT-LDo_nY I also really love Alessandra Marc's version:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jRO5PTQ3yg
