Leonard Bernstein recording Tristan und Isolde in Herkulessaal
This is a rare footage from one of the concert performances Leonard Bernstein did of Tristan und Isolde (Isolde's Liebestod) in Herkulessaal in Munich in 1981. Bernstein preferred in later years to record from live performances. The opera was recorded from independant concerts of each act, held with some months in between. From two of the concerts (of each act) the main material for the recording was made, with two days of remake and corrections.
