Aspects of Wagner

£20.00

Product description

SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR

'Why does Wagner provoke more irrational hostility - and more irrational adulation - than any other artist? People often talk about the philosophy behind his work: what was it? [...] Why are his works uniquely difficult to perform? And what has been his influence outside music? All these questions are answered in this book. [...] Bryan Magee studied music privately under Anthony Milner. In 1959 he reported the Bayreuth Festival for The Times and the Salzburg Festival for The Manchester Guardian, and in succeeding years reported European music festivals regularly for The Guardian.' - the Blurb.

This book was donated to Oxfam by the actor Nicholas Amer. The book is dedicated to Amer's partner Montague Haltrecht. The book is inscribed and signed by the author: 'Monty with very best wishes, as always Bryan'
