Wagner's mystical opera makes extraordinary demands on the conductor, but James Levine is renowned for the special affection and authority he brings to this transcendent work. The music shimmers and glows, evoking the legendary world of the Knights of the Holy Grail and the pure fool who brings healing power to the land. Peter Hofmann stars as the questing title hero, Jerome Hines sings the wise old man, Gurnemanz, and Mignon Dunn is the voluptuous Kundry, whose erotic temptations almost ensnare the young hero

Christian Thielemann kennt Richard Wagner wie kein anderer. Jetzt widmet der große Wagner-Dirigent seinem Lieblingskomponisten zum 200. Geburtstag ein Porträt. Er erzählt darin von seinen Erfahrungen mit Wagner, führt den Leser durch den Kosmos von dessen Werk und spürt jener nie ganz erklärlichen Magie nach, die Wagners Musik so einzigartig macht. "Ich weiß nicht mehr, was in meinem Leben zuerst da war: der Gedanke an Wagner oder der ans Dirigieren." Richard Wagner war für Christian Thielemann seit Beginn seiner Karriere Herausforderung und Inspiration, musikalisch wie technisch, emotional wie intellektuell. In seinem Buch schildert er, wie er zu Wagner kam, was er auf seinem Weg mit dem Komponisten gelernt hat und welche Begegnungen ihn geprägt haben. Er führt persönlich durch die Opern, stellt uns deren Helden vor und schaut in Wagners Giftküche, wo die narkotischsten Klänge der Welt gemischt wurden. Daneben gewährt er uns einen seltenen Blick in die Werkstatt des Dirigenten. Was muss er alles beachten, wenn er Wagners Zauber am Abend entfalten will? Vor welchen Fallen muss er sich hüten? Und was rechtfertigt noch heute den Mythos, der Bayreuth umgibt? Wagner wurde seit seinem Tod leidenschaftlich verehrt und leidenschaftlich verabscheut. Auch damit beschäftigt sich dieses Buch. Am Ende macht es jedoch allen, Wagner-Kennern wie Wagner-Debütanten, klar, warum sich ein Leben mit Wagner lohnt
