This is a very intense piece, romanticism at the maximum. In English it is called "Love Death". Dying for love, is it supposed to be sad? I am not sure... Not if you are a lover.

 

So, it is the final piece played at the opera called Tristan und Isolde; and it is sung. But here is the orchestral version, which I prefer over the sung one.

 

 

I think I have listened this piece 100 times in the last days, as it is so delightful.

 

And after being searching and listening for many versions, I found this one:

Which is the Liszt transcription to piano, but it is not played as pianists usually play it, but in a very special and personal way, by pianist Ervin Nyíregyházi. I listened to the other piano versions, but this one is... the best. Almost as intense and affective as the orchestral version, with a piano...

 

You should listen first the orchestral version, and later the piano version. You will be delighted, with both.

I love the liebestod, and all of Tristan.......I studied the score a lot and learned a lot from it, the power of the harmonies is immense.

I must be honest, I've listened to Tristan in it's entirety more than once. I think the first act is simply amazing. The Liebestod fails to move me though, I know I'm in the minority on that one.
