Wagner

Blending elements of German folklore and Christian legend, Richard Wagner transformed the genre of opera with his massive Ring Cycle. Stephen Johnson's succinct biography follows the composer's rise from humble origins to international renown, while a separate section features detailed discussions of Wagner's signature works. The book also includes a glossary of musical terms and important people in Wagner's story, as well as two CDs containing excerpts from Tristan und Isolde, Lohengrin, Tannhäuser, Die Walküre, the Wesendonck Lieder, and other works.
