Martin Gregor-Dellin (1926-1988) war einer der profiliertesten Kenner Richard Wagners. In dieser fundierten und fesselnden Biografie gibt er Auskunft über das Leben und Wirken des Musikgenies, über die Menschen, die ihn prägten und die er prägte, über die Stationen seines Schaffens, über seine Zeit und über seine unvergänglichen Werke. Die Hörbuchfassung, eingerichtet von Heinz-Dieter Sommer, unterstreicht die gelungene Verbindung von Lebens- mit allgemeiner Musik- und Zeitgeschichte. „Auf über 900 Seiten breitet Gregor-Dellin das Drama Richard Wagner vor uns hin. Und wer könnte es besser vorlesen als Ulrich Noethen - ruhig und gelassen, mit viel Sinn für die wohl proportionierte Dramaturgie. Wie in einem guten Roman werden wir gleich zu Beginn mit Macht hineingezogen in die Geschichte... Im Booklet erklärt Heinz-Dieter Sommer, wie er das Buch für die Hörbuch-Fassung bearbeitet hat: Der Musikwissenschaftler und Radio-Profi kürzte die wissenschaftlichen und analytischen Abschnitte, im Vordergrund steht nun die Erzählung des Lebens Richard Wagners. Sommers Ziel war es, auf diese Weise auch weniger musikinteressierte oder -kundige Hörerinnen und Hörer anzusprechen. Das ist auf wunderbare Weise gelungen. Gregor-Dellins Buch ist 1980 zum ersten Mal erschienen. Jetzt haben wir die Möglichkeit, uns von der Aktualität dieser Biografie zu überzeugen" (ndr.de). „Diese Biographie erschien als Buch schon 1980 und ist bis heute unerreicht. Bearbeitet von Heinz-Dieter Sommer entstand nun eine Hörfassung, die Leben und Werk des großen Komponisten mit dem Jahrhundert, in dem Wagner lebte, eng verzahnt und so ein intensives Verständnis für den Musiker in seiner Zeit fördert. Auch Dank der Stimme Ulrich Noethens nicht nur für Wagner-Freunde ein Genuss" (4. Platz der Hörbuchbestenliste vom März 2013)

This reprint is of the first English paperback edition of Richard Wagner's autobiography. This is a primary document of enormous importance for all Wagner enthusiasts, being virtually the sole source of information of the composer's childhood and youth. Written for Wagner's second wife, Cosima, and his patron, King Ludwig II, the autobiography runs from the composer's birth up to the eve of his fifty-first birthday in 1864. Given the intended readership and the circumstances of its composition it is hardly surprising that Wagner should either omit or distort facts from time to time: he does not linger over previous affairs, he portrays his relationship with his first wife, Minna, as a good deal more distant than it really was and he plays down his involvement in the Dresden uprising of 1849. Despite all this, the book presents a panoramic view of Wagner's times and contemporaries and offers a unique perspective on the operas themselves. This translation is of the complete edition published in Munich in 1963 and based on the manuscript in the Wagner Archives in Bayreuth. Wagner's slips of memory are noted, as are references to obscure names and events
