Rare ... Richard Wagner (overtures & marches - ASD 2837)

£5.99

Product description

(featuring the London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Marek Janowski)

Richard Wagner, is usually associated with the medium of opera, and it is true that all of his best-known works were written within that field of musical activity. However, Wagner, who started composing his music at the tender age of fifteen, started out largely in the field of instrumental, non-choral, pieces. Those early works included two sonatas and a fantasy, all for just the piano instrument, before he composed - during the years 1830-36 - no less than eight overtures, as well as a Symphony in C (1832).

Indeed, his first opera, 'Die Feen' written in 1833-34, is hardly any better-known than these now-obscure instrumental pieces. The same goes, for Wagner's next opera, 'Das Liebesverbot', which, under Wagner's own direction, led the Magdeburg Theatre into bankruptcy. In 1839-42, Richard Wagner completed his first operatic success, 'Rienzi', which went down a strom in Dresden.

From thereon in, Wagner's output consisted almost solely of operatic works, although the 'Huldigungsmarsch', dedicated to the King of Bavaria, is an instrumental exception ; the same almost goes for the 'Kaisermarsch' (1871) - written to celebrate German victory in the Franco-Prussian war of the time - apart from a single-line ad lib choral part, which Wagner called "Volksgesang" (folk hymn).

Side One :-
1) Overture 'Liebesverbot' 2) Huldigungsmarsch 3) Kaisermarsch

Side Two :-
1) Overture 'Die Feen' 2) American Centennial March
