Most widely held works by Klaus Kropfinger
Wagner and Beethoven : Richard Wagner's reception of Beethoven by Klaus Kropfinger( Book )

15 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book analyses the lifelong impact of Beethoven's music on Wagner and its importance for his conception of music drama. Kropfinger charts and scrutinises Wagner's early responses to the composer and considers his experience as a conductor of Beethoven's music. A discussion of the Romantic 'Beethoven image' leads to a careful study of Wagner's aesthetic writings, including his 'programmatic explanations', the text 'Concerning Franz Liszt's symphonic poems', and his Beethoven centenary essay. The penultimate chapter addresses Wagner's theory and practice of music drama which he came to regard as the preordained successor to the Beethovenian symphony. Through his study, Kropfinger offers a fresh understanding of Wagner, music drama, and the development of musical structures

"Tras los acontecimientos revolucionarios que tuvieron lugar en Dresde en la primavera de 1849, Wagner se vio forzado a exiliarse en Zurich. En esta ciudad suiza, entre los meses de octubre de 1850 y enero de 1851, llevó a cabo la redacción de la que está considerada como la obra clave de su pensamiento teórico-musical: Ópera y drama. A lo largo de las tres partes en que se articula, el genial alemán lleva a cabo una sopesada exposición de las ideas que, a su juicio, debían sostener cualquier creación operística que realmente se considerase tal: la unión íntima de texto y melodía; el problema de las arias como elementos de distorsión de la unidad del discurso musical; la importancia de los motivos musicales a la hora de dotar de coherencia y sentido pleno a la obra ... Testimonio de la importancia que concedía Wagner a este texto, en el que no escatima ataques a la producción contemporánea, encarnada especialmente en la figura de Meyerbeer, son las palabras con las que, tras concluirlo, se lo presentó a Theodor Uhlig: "Aquí tienes mi testamento, ahora puedo morir". Obra fundamental para entender en su justa medida el significado y la transcendencia del drama musical de Richard Wagner en la historia de la cultura universal, la presente edición recupera la excepcional traducción anotada que realizó {Angel Fernando Mayo, hito indiscutible de los estudios wagnerianos en lengua castellana."--Cubierta
