Product description

Review


"Few, if any, Wagner scholars could cull such a cornucopia of vital anecdotes, observations, and pictures as has Barry Millington in this compact treatment of Wagner and Wagnerism." --Joseph Horowitz, author of Wagner Nights: An American History and Moral Fire: Musical Portraits from America's Fin-de-Siecle


"Barry Millington has now written the book that many opera lovers have sought: a discussion of Wagner the man and his works in clear English, not too involved, not lost in musicological terms but covering all that an intelligent operagoer needs. All in all, this is a book that enlightens generally, contains much of Millington's own personal reactions to Wagner, and is marvelously readable." --Speight Jenkins, General Director, Seattle Opera


"An admirably succinct and thoughtful treatment of Wagner." --Wagner Notes


"Outstanding...The entire musicological and theatrical communities will profit greatly from Millington's careful and revealing research. This book will stand in perpetuity as one of the great biographical works on the composer and will be of immense benefit to present and future researchers on this 'sorcerer of Bayreuth.'" --The Wagnerian


"In the venerable tradition of Ernest Newman, Millington here adroitly manages to restore balance and sanity and sharp focus to the endless debate about the most controversial artist of the last two centuries...An admirably succinct and thoughtful treatment of Wagner "and
all that."" --Wagneriana


"Readers at every level will appreciate this excellent book...Highly recommended." --Choice


"Millington succeeds brilliantly..." --Revista de Libros
