Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This guide aims to unlock the world of Richard Wagner and his works, his monumental achievements, and, ultimately, the great emotional power inherent in his art. Decoding Wagner presents a straightforward, fresh overview of what Wagner attempted to achieve with his artwork of the future. Two accompanying full-length CDs illustrate and trace his growth as a composer.

Book News Annotation:

A music writer and commentator on the Web, radio, and print media, May argues that German composer Richard Wagner's (1813-83) operas are much richer, and therefore more artistically daring and dangerous, than the standard cliches about them suggest. He places each of his major operas in context, and considers his art as the amalgam of drama and music that it was for its creator. The two disks trace his development as a composer. There is no index.
