The Wagner Effect - TALK THREE

19 October 2011, 10:00am - 11:15am

 

Two study-days exploring Wagner and his influence on song in the late 19th Century.

Talk three given by Amanda Glauert

 

"Il faut méditerraniser la musique: Wolf’s response to Wagner in song"

Through his short but intense composing life Wolf travelled from being one of Wagner’s most faithful adherents to being one of his most perceptive critics.  Nietzsche’s influence was key in this transformation, prompting Wolf to explore the relationship between song and opera, comedy and tragedy, in ways that both drew on Wagner’s ideas and turned them inside out.
