Richard Wagner - Tristan und Isolde - Prelude

Performed by the Bayreuth Festival Orchestra lead by Karl Boehm. Recorded in 1966.

The score of Tristan und Isolde is a major landmark in the development in Western music. Wagner uses an expanded range of orchestral color, harmony and polyphony not found in his earlier operas. The very first chord in the piece, referred to as the Tristan chord, is of great significance in the move away from traditional tonal harmony as it resolves to another dissonant chord:

The Tristan chord consists of the following notes: F, B, D♯ and G♯. It can also be any chord that consists of the following intervals above the bass note: augmented fourth, augmented sixth, and augmented ninth.

The notes of the Tristan chord are not unusual and can be rearranged to form a common half-diminished seventh chord. What distinguishes the chord is its unusual relationship to the implied key of its surroundings. When it was first heard in 1865, it was considered to be innovative, disorienting, and daring. This chord made many consider that the sound or structure of musical harmony was to become more predominant than its function. This was a notion soon explored and expanded upon by Debussy and others.

to the viola asker- I used to play viola - so I sort of know the feeling there - but for a more recent experience, I am the only bass clarinetist in my band, and sometimes the only low wind, period. And my instrument is super finicky so when I mess up it's like, oh, she's squeaking again, and it's really embarrassing. So I def feel your pain *hug*

Hello. It's rather annoying because I play viola (please no viola jokes here) in a school orchestra, but since it's a very small orchestra, there are no other violas. Therefore every viola melody is essentially a solo and it's really obvious when I make a mistake. Do you know of anyone else with the same experience?

hm, i played viola too in high school but our high school had a pretty big music program so no, sorry D:

any of our followers have this problem?

Hi! My name is Andrea and I've been playing the piano since I was four. I love your blog so much! I've been playing the flute since I was ten and I just started the saxophone a few months ago. I played the violin a while ago but I quit. I really want to play again but I can't afford it. I also played the guitar but I quit. I wish I can play every instrument ever cause I really want to be a band teacher when I get older. I absolutely love Beethoven and I like basically every genre of music.

hey andrea :)

I was wondering if you knew of any arts camps other than interlochen? my name is Dylan and my primary is cello with a secondary of bassoon and I am going to college for music so I would like to do some camps before I get off to college. I love Shostakovich and Stravinsky.

hey dylan!

no, i don’t know about art camps at all D:
