Wagner from both sides now

No, not Joni Mitchell’s classic, but here are two versions of Wagner.  This has to be one of my top five favorite compositions ever.  The Vorspiel Tristan und Isolde of Wagner with a very convincing Toscanini.  His concept is quite moving and very emotional.   

 

The second is from the film of the life story of Marjorie Lawrence as played by Elenore Parker with the stunning instrument of Eileen Farrell.
