Wagner his life and music by Stephen Johnson ( )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Well over a century after Wagner's death, the man and his music are as controversial as ever. Praised for his profound insights into the workings of the human heart, he has also been condemned as a dangerous libertine, a proto-fascist and an arrogant bore. His vast four-part Ring cycle has been elevated as one of the greatest achievements of western culture and dismissed as a unparalleled example of creative megalomania. Stephen Johnson's biography makes no attempt to gloss over the darker sides of Wagner's character, but argues that the finer aspects of his vision transcend its flaws. It tells the story of an extraordinary life and charts Wagner's development into the creator of some of the most briliantly innovative and seductively beautiful music ever composed
