Of these, the most important are two versions of the Folie Tristan, in which Tristan is disguised as a fool, and the Luite Tris tan, in which he appears as a minstrel.
During the 13th century the story—like Arthurian legend—was embodied in a voluminous prose romance. This version, which recounts innumerable chivalric adventures of a conventional type, had superseded all other French versions by the end of the European Middle Ages, and it was in this form that Sir Thomas Malory knew the legend in the late 15th century, making it part of his Le Morte Darthur.
A popular romance in English, Sir Tristrem, dates from approximately and is one of the first poems written in the vernacular. Renewed interest in the legend during the 19th century followed upon discovery of the old poems.

This well-worn…. The universally popular legend of Tristan and Isolde had evolved by the midth century, apparently from a fusion of Scottish, Irish, Cornish, and Breton elements, beginning in Scotland and moving south.
The opera is noted for its numerous expansions of harmonic practice; for instance, one significant innovation is the frequent use of two consecutive chords containing tritones diminished fifth or augmented fourth , neither of which is a diminished seventh chord F—B, bar 2; E—A-sharp, bar 3.
Tristan und Isolde is also notable for its use of harmonic suspension — a device used by a composer to create musical tension by exposing the listener to a series of prolonged unfinished cadences , thereby inspiring a desire and expectation on the part of the listener for musical resolution.
The cadences first introduced in the prelude are not resolved until the finale of act 3, and, on a number of occasions throughout the opera, Wagner primes the audience for a musical climax with a series of chords building in tension — only to deliberately defer the anticipated resolution.
One particular example of this technique occurs at the end of the love duet in act 2 "Wie sie fassen, wie sie lassen The deferred resolution is frequently interpreted as symbolising both physical sexual release and spiritual release via suicide - the long-awaited completion of this cadence series arrives only in the final " Liebestod " "Love-Death" , during which the musical resolution at "In des Welt-Atems wehendem All" coincides with the moment of Isolde's death.
The tonality of Tristan was to prove immensely influential in western Classical music. Wagner's use of musical colour also influenced the development of film music.
Bernard Herrmann 's score for Alfred Hitchcock 's classic, Vertigo , is heavily reminiscent of the Liebestod , most evidently in the resurrection scene.
Not all composers, however, reacted favourably: Claude Debussy 's piano piece " Golliwog's Cakewalk " mockingly quotes the opening of the opera in a distorted form, instructing the passage to be played ' avec une grande emotion '.
However, Debussy was highly influenced by Wagner and was particularly fond of Tristan. Frequent moments of Tristan -inspired tonality mark Debussy's early compositions.
Isolde , promised to King Marke in marriage, and her handmaid, Brangäne , are quartered aboard Tristan's ship being transported to the king's lands in Cornwall.
The opera opens with the voice of a young sailor singing of a "wild Irish maid", "Westwärts schweift der Blick" which Isolde construes to be a mocking reference to herself.
In a furious outburst, she wishes the seas to rise up and sink the ship, killing herself and all on board "Erwache mir wieder, kühne Gewalt".
Her scorn and rage are directed particularly at Tristan, the knight responsible for taking her to Marke, and Isolde sends Brangäne to command Tristan to appear before her "Befehlen liess' dem Eigenholde".
Tristan, however, refuses Brangäne's request, claiming that his place is at the helm. Brangäne returns to Isolde to relate these events, and Isolde, in what is termed the "narrative and curse", sadly tells her of how, following the death of Morold, she happened upon a stranger who called himself Tantris.
Tantris was found mortally wounded in a barge "von einem Kahn, der klein und arm" and Isolde used her healing powers to restore him to health.
Isolde attempted to kill the man with his own sword as he lay helpless before her. However, Tristan looked not at the sword that would kill him or the hand that wielded the sword, but into her eyes "Er sah' mir in die Augen".
His action pierced her heart and she was unable to slay him. Tristan was allowed to leave with the promise never to come back, but he later returned with the intention of marrying Isolde to his uncle, King Marke.
Isolde, furious at Tristan's betrayal, insists that he drink atonement to her, and from her medicine chest produces a vial to make the drink.
Brangäne is shocked to see that it is a lethal poison. Kurwenal appears in the women's quarters "Auf auf!
Ihr Frauen! Isolde warns Kurwenal that she will not appear before the King if Tristan does not come before her as she had previously ordered and drink atonement to her.
When Tristan arrives, Isolde reproaches him about his conduct and tells him that he owes her his life and how his actions have undermined her honour, since she blessed Morold's weapons before battle and therefore she swore revenge.
Tristan first offers his sword but Isolde refuses; they must drink atonement. Brangäne brings in the potion that will seal their pardon; Tristan knows that it may kill him, since he knows Isolde's magic powers "Wohl kenn' ich Irlands Königin".
The journey almost at its end, Tristan drinks and Isolde takes half the potion for herself. The potion seems to work, but instead of death, it brings relentless love "Tristan!
Kurwenal, who announces the imminent arrival on board of King Marke, interrupts their rapture. Isolde asks Brangäne which potion she prepared and Brangäne replies, as the sailors hail the arrival of King Marke, that it was not poison , but rather a love potion.
King Marke leads a hunting party out into the night, leaving Isolde and Brangäne alone in the castle, who both stand beside a burning brazier.
Isolde, listening to the hunting horns, believes several times that the hunting party is far enough away to warrant the extinguishing of the brazier — the prearranged signal for Tristan to join her "Nicht Hörnerschall tönt so hold".
Brangäne warns Isolde that Melot, one of King Marke's knights, has seen the amorous looks exchanged between Tristan and Isolde and suspects their passion "Ein Einz'ger war's, ich achtet' es wohl".
Isolde, however, believes Melot to be Tristan's most loyal friend, and, in a frenzy of desire, extinguishes the flames. Brangäne retires to the ramparts to keep watch as Tristan arrives.
The lovers, at last alone and freed from the constraints of courtly life, declare their passion for each other.
Tristan decries the realm of daylight which is false, unreal, and keeps them apart. It is only in night, he claims, that they can truly be together and only in the long night of death can they be eternally united "O sink' hernieder, Nacht der Liebe".
During their long tryst, Brangäne calls a warning several times that the night is ending "Einsam wachend in der Nacht" , but her cries fall upon deaf ears.
The day breaks in on the lovers as Melot leads King Marke and his men to find Tristan and Isolde in each other's arms.
Marke is heartbroken, not only because of his nephew's betrayal but also because Melot chose to betray his friend Tristan to Marke and because of Isolde's betrayal as well "Mir — dies?
Dies, Tristan — mir? When questioned, Tristan says he cannot answer to the King the reason of his betrayal since he would not understand.
He turns to Isolde, who agrees to follow him again into the realm of night. Tristan announces that Melot has fallen in love with Isolde too. Melot and Tristan fight, but, at the crucial moment, Tristan throws his sword aside and allows Melot to severely wound him.
Kurwenal has brought Tristan home to his castle at Kareol in Brittany. A shepherd pipes a mournful tune and asks if Tristan is awake.
Kurwenal replies that only Isolde's arrival can save Tristan, and the shepherd offers to keep watch and claims that he will pipe a joyful tune to mark the arrival of any ship.
Tristan awakes "Die alte Weise — was weckt sie mich? Tristan's sorrow ends when Kurwenal tells him that Isolde is on her way.
Tristan, overjoyed, asks if her ship is in sight, but only a sorrowful tune from the shepherd's pipe is heard. Tristan relapses and recalls that the shepherd's mournful tune is the same as was played when he was told of the deaths of his father and mother "Muss ich dich so versteh'n, du alte, ernst Weise".
He rails once again against his desires and against the fateful love potion "verflucht sei, furchtbarer Trank! After his collapse, the shepherd is heard piping the arrival of Isolde's ship, and, as Kurwenal rushes to meet her, Tristan tears the bandages from his wounds in his excitement "Hahei!
Mein Blut, lustig nun fliesse! As Isolde arrives at his side, Tristan dies with her name on his lips. Isolde collapses beside her deceased lover just as the appearance of another ship is announced.
Alles zur Hand! He believes they have come to kill Tristan and, in an attempt to avenge him, furiously attacks Melot. Marke tries to stop the fight to no avail.
Both Melot and Kurwenal are killed in the fight. Marke and Brangäne finally reach Tristan and Isolde. Marke, grieving over the body of his "truest friend" "Tot denn alles!
Isolde appears to wake at this and in a final aria describing her vision of Tristan risen again the " Liebestod ", "love death" , dies "Mild und leise wie er lächelt".
Wagner's friend the poet Georg Herwegh introduced him in late to the work of the philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer. Man, according to Schopenhauer, is driven by continued, unachievable desires, and the gulf between our desires and the possibility of achieving them leads to misery while the world is a representation of an unknowable reality.
Our representation of the world is Phenomenon , while the unknowable reality is Noumenon : concepts originally posited by Kant. Schopenhauer's influence on Tristan und Isolde is most evident in the second and third acts.
The second act, in which the lovers meet, and the third act, during which Tristan longs for release from the passions that torment him, have often proved puzzling to opera-goers unfamiliar with Schopenhauer's work.
Wagner uses the metaphor of Day and Night in the second act to designate the realms inhabited by Tristan and Isolde. Under the dictates of the realm of Day, Tristan was forced to remove Isolde from Ireland and to marry her to his Uncle Marke — actions against Tristan's secret desires.
The realm of Night, in contrast, is the representation of intrinsic reality, in which the lovers can be together and their desires can be openly expressed and reach fulfilment: it is the realm of oneness, truth and reality and can only be achieved fully upon the deaths of the lovers.
The realm of Night, therefore, becomes also the realm of death: the only world in which Tristan and Isolde can be as one forever, and it is this realm that Tristan speaks of at the end of act 2 "Dem Land das Tristan meint, der Sonne Licht nicht scheint".
In this way, Wagner implicitly equates the realm of Day with Schopenhauer's concept of Phenomenon and the realm of Night with Schopenhauer's concept of Noumenon.
The world-view of Schopenhauer dictates that the only way for man to achieve inner peace is to renounce his desires: a theme that Wagner explored fully in his last opera, Parsifal.
In fact Wagner even considered having the character of Parsifal meet Tristan during his sufferings in act 3, but later rejected the idea.
Klaas A. Posthuma argues that neither Tristan nor Isolde tries for one moment to ignore feelings of love for the other or to overcome them.
On the contrary, they yield to their feelings with all their hearts — but secretly. Such behavior has nothing whatever to do with Schopenhauer's claim.
Another important point in Schopenhauer's philosophy is his view that happiness cannot be found with one woman only — his reason for never marrying.
But for Tristan there is only one woman, Isolde, with Death as alternative. And this leads to the inevitable conclusion that it was not Schopenhauer and his doctrine that were responsible for creating of Wagner's sublime music drama but his own unfulfilled longing for the woman he met and loved during these years, Mathilde Wesendonck.
Although Tristan und Isolde is now widely performed in major opera houses around the world, critical opinion of the opera was initially unfavourable.
The 5 July edition of the Allgemeine musikalische Zeitung reported:. In the service of this end, music has been enslaved to the word; the most ideal of the Muses has been made to grind the colours for indecent paintings Wagner makes sensuality itself the true subject of his drama We think that the stage presentation of the poem Tristan und Isolde amounts to an act of indecency.
Wagner does not show us the life of heroes of Nordic sagas which would edify and strengthen the spirit of his German audiences. What he does present is the ruination of the life of heroes through sensuality.
Eduard Hanslick 's reaction in to the prelude to Tristan was that it "reminds one of the old Italian painting of a martyr whose intestines are slowly unwound from his body on a reel.
We cannot refrain from making a protest against the worship of animal passion which is so striking a feature in the late works of Wagner.
We grant there is nothing so repulsive in Tristan as in Die Walküre , but the system is the same. The passion is unholy in itself and its representation is impure, and for those reasons we rejoice in believing that such works will not become popular.
If they did we are certain their tendency would be mischievous, and there is, therefore, some cause for congratulation in the fact that Wagner's music, in spite of all its wondrous skill and power, repels a greater number than it fascinates.
Mark Twain , on a visit to Germany, heard Tristan at Bayreuth and commented: "I know of some, and have heard of many, who could not sleep after it, but cried the night away.
I feel strongly out of place here. Sometimes I feel like the one sane person in the community of the mad; sometimes I feel like the one blind man where all others see; the one groping savage in the college of the learned, and always, during service, I feel like a heretic in heaven.
Clara Schumann wrote that Tristan und Isolde was "the most repugnant thing I have ever seen or heard in all my life". With the passage of time, Tristan became more favourably regarded.
In an interview shortly before his death, Giuseppe Verdi said that he "stood in wonder and terror" before Wagner's Tristan. Richard Strauss , initially dismissive of Tristan, claimed that Wagner's music "would kill a cat and would turn rocks into scrambled eggs from fear of [its] hideous discords.
It was the most wonderful day of my life. The conductor Bruno Walter heard his first Tristan und Isolde in as a student:. So there I sat in the topmost gallery of the Berlin Opera House, and from the first sound of the cellos my heart contracted spasmodically Never before has my soul been deluged with such floods of sound and passion, never had my heart been consumed by such yearning and sublime bliss A new epoch had begun: Wagner was my god, and I wanted to become his prophet.
Arnold Schoenberg referred to Wagner's technique of shifting chords in Tristan as "phenomena of incredible adaptability and nonindependence roaming, homeless, among the spheres of keys; spies reconnoitering weaknesses; to exploit them in order to create confusion, deserters for whom surrender of their own personality is an end in itself".
Friedrich Nietzsche , who in his younger years was one of Wagner's staunchest allies, wrote that, for him, " Tristan and Isolde is the real opus metaphysicum of all art In a letter to his friend Erwin Rohde in October , Nietzsche described his reaction to Tristan's prelude: "I simply cannot bring myself to remain critically aloof from this music; every nerve in me is atwitch, and it has been a long time since I had such a lasting sense of ecstasy as with this overture".
Even after his break with Wagner, Nietzsche continued to consider Tristan a masterpiece: "Even now I am still in search of a work which exercises such a dangerous fascination, such a spine-tingling and blissful infinity as Tristan — I have sought in vain, in every art.
Marcel Proust , greatly influenced by Wagner, refers to Tristan und Isolde and its "inexhaustible repetitions" throughout his novel In Search of Lost Time.
He describes the prelude theme as "linked to the future, to the reality of the human soul, of which it was one of the most special and distinctive ornaments.
Tristan und Isolde has a long recorded history and most of the major Wagner conductors since the end of the First World War have had their interpretations captured on disc.
The limitations of recording technology meant that until the s it was difficult to record the entire opera, however recordings of excerpts or single acts exist going back to , when excerpts of Tristan were captured on the Mapleson Cylinders recorded during performances at the Metropolitan Opera.
In the years before World War II, Kirsten Flagstad and Lauritz Melchior were considered to be the prime interpreters of the lead roles, and mono recordings exist of this pair in a number of live performances led by conductors such as Thomas Beecham , Fritz Reiner , Artur Bodanzky and Erich Leinsdorf.
Flagstad recorded the part commercially only near the end of her career in , under Wilhelm Furtwängler for EMI , producing a set which is considered a classic recording.
In the s, the soprano Birgit Nilsson was considered the major Isolde interpreter, and she was often partnered with the Tristan of Wolfgang Windgassen.
Their performance at Bayreuth in under the baton of Karl Böhm was captured by Deutsche Grammophon — a performance often hailed as one of the best Tristan recordings.
Karajan did not record the opera officially until — Karajan's selection of a lighter soprano voice Helga Dernesch as Isolde, paired with an extremely intense Jon Vickers and the unusual balance between orchestra and singers favoured by Karajan was controversial.
In the s recordings by conductors such as Carlos Kleiber , Reginald Goodall and Leonard Bernstein were mostly considered to be important for the interpretation of the conductor, rather than that of the lead performers.
The set by Kleiber is notable as Isolde was sung by the famous Mozartian soprano Margaret Price , who never sang the role of Isolde on stage.
In the last ten years acclaimed sets include a studio recording with the Berlin Philharmonic by Daniel Barenboim and a live set from the Vienna Staatsoper led by Christian Thielemann.
In a world first, the British opera house Glyndebourne made a full digital video download of the opera available for purchase online in The Prelude and Liebestod is a concert version of the overture and Isolde's act 3 aria, "Mild und leise".
The arrangement was by Wagner himself, and it was first performed in , several years before the premiere of the complete opera in The Liebestod can be performed either in a purely orchestral version, or with a soprano singing Isolde's vision of Tristan resurrected.
However, the very first time the prelude and its opening "Tristan chord" was heard publicly was on 12 March , when it was performed at the Sophieninselsaal in Prague , in a charity concert in aid of poor medical students, conducted by Hans von Bülow , who provided his own concert ending for the occasion.
Wagner had authorised such an ending, but did not like what Bülow had done with it and later wrote his own. Wagner called the prelude the " Liebestod " Love-death while Isolde's final aria "Mild und leise" he called the "Verklärung" Transfiguration.
In his father-in-law Franz Liszt made a piano transcription of "Mild und leise" , which he called "Liebestod" S. Liszt's transcription became well known throughout Europe well before Wagner's opera reached most places, and it is Liszt's title for the final scene that persists.
The transcription was revised in Wagner wrote a concert ending for the act 2 Love Duet for a planned concert performance that did not eventuate.Weitere Bedeutungen sind unter Tristan und Isolde Begriffsklärung aufgeführt.

King Haakon had wanted to promote Angevin - Norman culture at his court, and so commissioned the translation of several French Arthurian works.
The Nordic version presents a complete, direct narrative of the events in Thomas' Tristan, with the telling omission of his numerous interpretive diversions.
It is the only complete representative of the courtly branch in its formative period. Preceding the work of Brother Robert chronologically is the Tristan and Isolt of Gottfried von Strassburg , written circa — The poem was Gottfried's only known work, and was left incomplete due to his death with the retelling reaching half-way through the main plot.
The poem was later completed by authors such as Heinrich von Freiberg and Ulrich von Türheim , but with the "common" branch of the legend as the ideal source.
The branch is so named due to its representation of an earlier non- chivalric , non-courtly, tradition of story-telling, making it more reflective of the Dark Ages than of the refined High Middle Ages.
In this respect, they are similar to Layamon's Brut and the Perlesvaus. There were a few substantial fragments of his works discovered in the 19th century, and the rest was reconstructed from later versions.
Therefore, Beroul's version is an archetype for later "common branch" editions. Eilhart was popular, but pales in comparison with the later Gottfried.
One aspect of the common branch that differentiates them significantly from the courtly branch is their depiction of the lovers' time in exile from Mark's court.
While the courtly branch describe Tristan and Iseult as sheltering in a "Cave of Lovers" and living in happy seclusion, thus keeping with the tradition of courtly and chivalric writing, the common branches emphasize the extreme suffering that Tristan and Iseult endure.
In the common branch, the exile is a true punishment that highlights the couple's departure from courtly norms and emphasizes the impossibility of their romance.
He dubbed this hypothetical original the "Ur-Tristan", and wrote his still-popular Romance of Tristan and Iseult as an attempt to reconstruct what this might have been like.
Gallagher was published in by Hackett Publishing Company. A translation by Hilaire Belloc , first published in , it was published in as a Caedmon Audio recording read by Claire Bloom  and republished in It concerns another of Tristan's clandestine returns to Cornwall in which the banished hero signals his presence to Iseult by means of an inscription on a branch of a hazelnut tree placed on the road she will travel.
The title refers to the symbiosis of the honeysuckle and hazelnut tree which die when separated, as do Tristan and Iseult: " Ni vous sans moi, ni moi sans vous.
There are also two 12th-century Folies Tristan , Old French poems identified as the Berne and the Oxford versions , which relate Tristan's return to Marc's court under the guise of a madman.
Extremely popular in the 13th and 14th century, the narratives of these lengthy versions vary in detail from manuscript to manuscript. Modern editions run twelve volumes for the long version, which includes Tristan's participation in the Quest for the Holy Grail, or five volumes for a shorter version without the Grail Quest.
The earliest complete source of the Tristan material in English was Sir Tristrem , a romance of some lines written circa It is preserved in the famous Auchinleck manuscript at the National Library of Scotland.
The narrative largely follows the courtly branch tradition. As is true with many medieval English adaptations of French Arthuriana, the poem's artistic achievement can only be described as average, though some critics have tried to rehabilitate it, claiming it is a parody.
Its first editor, Walter Scott , provided a sixty line ending to the story, which has been printed with the romance in every subsequent edition.
Since the Winchester Manuscript surfaced in , there has been much scholarly debate whether the Tristan narrative, like all the episodes in Le Morte d'Arthur , was originally intended to be an independent piece or part of a larger work.
In Italy, there were many cantari , or oral poems performed in the public square, either about Tristan or frequently referencing him. There are also four differing versions of the Prose Tristan in medieval Italy, most named after their place of composition or library in which they are currently to be found: Tristano Panciaticchiano , Tristano Riccardiano , and Tristano Veneto.
In the collection of Old Norse prose-translations of Marie de France's lais — called Strengleikar Stringed Instruments — two lais with Arthurian content have been preserved, one of them being the "Chevrefoil", translated as "Geitarlauf".
By the 19th century, scholars had found Tristan legends spread across the Nordic world, from Denmark to the Faroe Islands.
These stories, however, diverged greatly from their medieval precursors. In one Danish ballad, for instance, Tristan and Iseult are made brother and sister.
A line fragment of a Dutch version ca. It is the only known verse representative of the Tristan story in a Slavic language. The Old Belarusian prose Povest o Tryshchane represents the furthest eastern advance of the legend, and, composed in the s, is considered by some critics to be the last "medieval" Tristan or Arthurian text period.
Its lineage goes back to the Tristano Veneto. Venice , at that time, controlled large parts of the Serbo-Croatian language area, engendering a more active literary and cultural life there than in most of the Balkans during this period.
The manuscript of the Povest states that it was translated from a lost Serbian intermediary. Scholars assume that the legend must have journeyed from Venice, through its Balkan colonies, finally reaching a last outpost in this Slavic language.
The Tristan story was represented in several art media, from ivory mirror-cases to the 13th-century Sicilian Tristan Quilt.
Many of the manuscripts with literary versions are illuminated with miniatures. Later, the legend became a popular subject for Romanticist painters of the late 19th and early 20th century.
In English, the Tristan story suffered the same fate as the Matter of Britain generally. After being mostly ignored for about three centuries, there was a renaissance of original Arthurian literature, mostly narrative verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Thomas Hardy 's The Famous Tragedy of the Queen of Cornwall at Tintagel in Lyonnesse is a one-act play which was published in the book includes an imaginary drawing of the castle at the period.
In , Gaetano Donizetti references this story in his opera L'elisir d'amore as the character of Adina sings the story to the ensemble, inspiring Nemorino to ask the charlatan Dulcamara for the magic elixir.
Twentieth-century composers also used the legend often with Wagnerian overtones in their compositions. Hans Werner Henze 's Tristan borrowed freely from the Wagnerian version as well as retellings of the legend.
The story has also been adapted into film many times. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For other uses, see Tristan and Iseult disambiguation.
