Richard Wagner: The Last of the Titans  

In this excellent biography of Richard Wagner, a giant among composers, Kohler acclaims the genius of the composer whilst re-evaluating the relationships the composer had within his family and confirming the controversy over his anti-semitism. The author also explores the philosophical ideas behind Wagner's composition.

 

The Wagner Compendium: A Guide to Wagner's Life and Music  

The life of Wagner, his work, against the background of German unification and the creation of Bismarck's Reich are surveyed in detail in this book. There is even a chapter on the myths and legends surrounding the composer dispelling any misconceptions about his behaviour towards women and Jews. Wagner's operas, orchestral music and choral works together with vocal solos and piano pieces are analysed together with the operas left tantalisingly incomplete. Wagner's orchestration is dicussed together with accounts of his music's reception in performance.Here you will find the most extensive list of his writings, speeches, open letters and reviews ever published.
