Comments:- Recording of Act 1 from a performance in The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden (June 1950). Tristan and Isolde was broadcast by the BBC Third Programme on 29 June and 1 July 1950. Presumably this recording was taken from the former. (See Radio Times Issue dated June 25 - July 1 1950 p.27, p.35). The recording issued by Walhall is a «filler» on the CDs of the recording (originally Decca) of Götterdämmerung.
