The author examines the various surviving sources - all of which postdate the first performance by at least 80 years - and discusses their inconsistencies with Nahum Tate's original libretto. A useful reference section includes a critical discography and appendices charting a...

Joachim Köhler
Afbeelding van Richard Wagner
The Last of the Titans
In this new biography of Richard Wagner, Joachim Koehler draws on social and political analysis, documentary interpretation, and psychological insights to paint a rounded picture of Wagner as both a controversial historical phenomenon and a complex human being. Koehler's reading of the letters, diaries, and other documents of the main protagonists, some of them unfamiliar even to seasoned Wagnerians, results in some breathtaking but convincing reappraisals. He examines Wagner's love affairs with Jessie Laussot, Mathilde Wesendonck, and Judith Gautier and assesses their lasting emotional...

Richard Wagner
Afbeelding van PARSIFAL
Die Legende um den Heiligen Gral
Parsifal ist das letzte musikdramatische Werk von Richard Wagner. Wagner selbst bezeichnete das dreiaktige Stück als ein Bühnenweihfestspiel und verfügte, dass es ausschließlich im Bayreuther Festspielhaus aufgeführt werden sollte. Zur Handlung: Auf einer Waldlichtung nahe der Gralsburg weckt Ritter Gurnemanz einige Knappen. Er fordert sie auf, zu beten und das Morgenbad des an einer nicht heilenden Wunde leidenden jungen Gralskönigs Amfortas vorzubereiten. Die Szene wird durch Lärm vom nahen See gestört. Die Ritter haben einen Knaben gefangen, der mit Pfeil und Bogen einen heiligen...

Richard Wagner
Afbeelding van The Ring of the Nibelung
A superb new translation of the libretto to Wagner's Ring cycle 'Smiling in sorrow I sing of love' The Ring of the Nibelung, Wagner's epic cycle of four musical dramas about primal envy, cosmic conflict, the search for glory, spectacular self-sacrifice, redeeming human love and the downfall of gods, revolutionized the nature of opera and conjured up an entire mythological world. It is also one of the greatest texts ever written for the lyric stage, where words are not an adjunct to the music, but an essential part of a transformative experience.
