Product Overview

This is the first truly interdisciplinary collection devoted to the legacy of Richard Wagner to merge insights from Musicology and Music Theory with explorations of the composer''s vast socio-cultural impact from such fields as History, German, and Disability Studies.  The wide ranging topics include Glenn Gould''s piano transcriptions, the value of naming musical themes in the music dramas, the status of Wagner in Israel, and the assignment of "Jewish" characteristics in both Wagner''s music and polemics and, in recent years, to his descendant, musicologist Gottfried Wagner. Contributors include Robert Gauldin, Warren Darcy, Marc Weiner, and Paul Rose.
