Wagner – Liebestod from Tristan and Isolde for Trombone Octet
Wagner, Richard – Liebestod from Tristan and Isolde for Trombone Octet.
Liebestod (German for "Love Death") is the title of the final, dramatic music from the 1859 opera Tristan and Isolde by Richard Wagner. The music is actually an aria that Isolde sings over Tristan's dead body before she herself is consumed in death.
The music is lush, with rich harmonies and undulating rhythms as the agony of death is also meshed with the passion of love.
Randall Malmstrom has scored this 7-minute work for Trombone octet of advanced performers.
