|Description||'A fine, intellectually sparkling and always engaging little book - a welcome addition to any Wagner library' Hans Vaget, Opera Quarterly Whilst one would dispute Wagner's ranking among the most significant composers in the history of Western music, his works have been more fiercely attacked than those of any other composer. His supposed personal defects have provoked intense hostility which has translated into a mistrust and abhorrence of his music. Tanner's fascination for the relationship between music, text and plot generates and illuminating discussion of the operas, in which he persuades us to see many of Wagner's best-kw works afresh. His passionate and unconventional analyses are accessible to all lovers of music, be they listeners or performers.|
