Deborah Polaski, Johan Botha - Tristan und Isolde The duet scenes FLAC album
For what it is, this disc by soprano Deborah Polaski and tenor Johan Botha with Bertrand de Billy leading the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra can't be beat. Of course, what it is - the duet from Wagner's Tristan und Isolde - is conceptually unusual, though it does make a certain amount of sense. But, naturally, the focus is on Polaski and Botha, and both deliver exciting performances. Polaski has a huge voice with an ardent tone and a throbbing vibrato, while Botha has a heroic voice with a clarion tone and a searing attack, and the combination of the two is just this side of overwhelming.

Johan Botha (19 August 1965 – 8 September 2016) was a South African operatic tenor. Born in Rustenburg, South Africa, Botha began his vocal training with Jarmilla Tellenger from the age of 10 through 17. He then served for two years in the South African Air Force before pursuing further studies in Pretoria with Eric Muller. His voice initially was trained as a bass-baritone and his first opera performance was portraying the title role in a student production of Verdi's Falstaff.
Deborah Polaski, on the other hand, has sung Isolde for over two decades. On the plus side, she has developed a full-scale interpretation of a woman of barely controllable temperament, almost as fearsome in her passion as in her act one rage. On the not so plus side - the voice simply does not record well. She sounds quite a bit older than her Tristan, and the top tends to spread. There’s no time for King Marke, either, or anything from act three. Perhaps better yet, switch over to the Nilsson/Hotter disc for Birgit’s exalted Mild und leise.
