Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the most controversial figures in classical music, Richard Wagner's influence reaches as far as the film Apocalypse Now. Written by leading music critic Michael White, this graphic guide looks at Wagner's complex life, capturing his caprices, cruelties, and anti-semitism.

Synopsis:

A fascinating guide to the controversial life of Austrian composer Richard Wagner.

About the Author

Michael White was voted Britains least boring music critic by listeners of Classic FM. He has made documentaries about Menotti, Britten and Nielsen and once attempted to explain Wagner's Ring Cycle on TV in half an hour. He's the author of two books: Introducing Wagner (Icon) and Opera and Operetta (HarperCollins).
