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

808 editions published between 1850 and 2017 in 13 languages and held by 3,660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This opera has been described as "the longest single smile in the German language". But Roland Matthews indicates that violence is not far beneath the surface of this portrait of medieval Nuremberg. Arnold Whittall's analysis gives a bird's-eye view of the complexity of the score. Timothy McFarland explores the significance of the choice of subject: that nostalgia for a pre-industrial community, which was a symptom of the German nationalist movement. The long text has many subtleties which opera audiences can hardly appreciate without reading it, and the musical themes are numbered to indicate

The ring of the Nibelung by Richard Wagner( Book )

294 editions published between 1852 and 2017 in 13 languages and held by 2,542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen is one of the most influential theatrical works ever written. It is a powerful music-drama on a grand scale, a full appreciation of which depends on an understand-ing of exactly what is being sung. Wagner's German was deliber-ately archaic and romantic; until recently, there has been no singing translation which transmits with genuine feeling the complex and literate text, matching the stress and inflection in the score. This translation, commissioned by the English National Opera Company for their highly successful production of The Ring in English, is the work of Andrew Porter, music critic of The New Yorker. The edition includes a German text and Mr. Porter has provided an essay dealing with the problems of translating the work."--Publisher's description

A tale of a knight with no name who fights for the honor of Elsa of Brabant, only to have her fail to abide by her one promise.

Ludwig van Beethoven (16 December 1770? 26 March 1827) was a German composer and pianist. He was a crucial figure in the transitional period between the Classical and Romantic eras in Western classical music, and remains one of the most acclaimed and influential composers of all time. Born in Bonn, then in the Electorate of Cologne in western Germany, he moved to Vienna in his early twenties and settled there, studying with Joseph Haydn and quickly gaining a reputation as a virtuoso pianist. Beethoven's hearing gradually deteriorated beginning in his twenties, yet he continued to compose, and
