Summary
"In this guide to Wagner and his works, Thomas May explores the world of this deeply misunderstood figure and cultural icon whose influence extends to all the arts. Challenging commonly held assumptions, May serves as a guide to the great emotional power in Wagner's art and presents a straightforward overview of what Wagner attempted to achieve with his "artwork of the future." Discussions of his major works place them in the context of his life and consider the interplay of dramatic and musical elements with Wagner's unique philosophical ideas." "Two accompanying CDs trace Wagner's growth as a composer, revealing the expressive richness that continues to make his art compelling and relevant for contemporary audiences."--Jacket
