framus Opera (239* d) RE: Opera 16 Sep 12


Somebody famous said "Wagner has some WONDERFUL moments,unfortunately he has several terrible half hours!"
What relevance has Wagner's, generally acknowledged, anti semitism, to the quality of his music? Or the fact that the operas themselves contain any facistic tenor. He didn't write them, although he may have interpreted their meaning. I don't know, did he write the libretti?
For those who are fazed by the sheer size and power of the Ring, have a listen to the Siegfried Idyll, originally written for Cosima on the birth of his son.
Just a thought!
Davy.
