New Recording: Re-discovering Richard Wagner Through His Music by Saul Lilienstein


A little Wagner music for your stocking? No politics—no Freudian analysis—no arcane discussions of wives, sweethearts, petty hatreds, financial dealings, egocentricities—vegetarianism or choices in satin underwear distracts from the essential core that keeps us going back to Wagner’s Music Dramas: the greatness within the music, the majesty of his artistic conceptions.

Long awaited recording of Saul Lilienstein’s all-day seminar at the Goethe Institut on March 19, 2011.
