This review is from: Tristan & Isolde (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) (Audio CD)Once again we have a bunch of music snobs attacking the music from this film not because it is not good but because it doesn't pay homage to Wagner. There are upwards of 100 folk variations of this tale and most of those did not even incorporate a musical score....but we owe Wagner a walk on because of his opera? Please.....
The music in this movie is breathtaking and poignant. It mirrors the tale wonderfully, which if it were Wagner the other music Snobs would be saying "germanic music for a celtic storry???????"
This score is not good to fall asleep by.
The arguments of music snobs will perform that task just fine
