"Chilean-born Ramon Vinay began his operatic career as a baritone (Mexico City, 1938), singing many of the major baritone roles, but after study with tenor René Maison, he began a second career as a tenor (Mexico City, 1943), and after a long, distinguished career as a tenor, returned to the baritone repertoire in the 1960s, retiring in 1969 with a final Iago. He was most noted for tenor roles requiring great heft and power. His services were in demand everywhere."

- Charles H. Parsons, AMERICAN RECORD GUIDE, May/June, 2006

�Before M�dl has sung a dozen bars, we know this Isolde�s situation and personality vividly and fully: the bottled-up fury, the sour regret, the quick intelligence running to irony � it�s all here in M�dl�s opening phrases. This is one of the richest and most penetrating character portrayals I have ever heard on records. The other singers are fine too, and so of course is Karajan�.an important TRISTAN for anyone who loves the work.�
