Thanks for your recommendations everyone! Ah, the anti-fashist in me has a hard time dabbling in Wagner already, and now you ask me to go straight for a Karajan recording? Just kidding , no offence to fans of Wagner and Karajan here. And even our Host once started a thread about this one, because he agrees with you on the Tristan und Isolde. At the moment I consider the Levine, since it has all the pieces I look for and can be had cheap. I found that my streaming service has all three (Karajan, Levine, Klemperer), so I will give them all a listen and decide which makes the most sense for me. I know how much you love your Furtwängler, but I'm still not ready for historical mono recordings. Sorry. But I will have a look at the others, maybe I can find them on my streaming service them too. Next thing I will tell you Americans what the Blues is all about.
