Richard Wagner

May 16, 2020

By Pierre Petit - Third party reproduction from Die Bildnisse Richard Wagners

The operas of Richard Wagner are notable for their length, and it must be admitted that they have moments when one is tempted to nod. But they also have moments of supreme excitement. Wagner was the master of the grand finale. On Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, we will hear the exciting end to Act One of Die Walküre, and the ultimate Wagner finale, the one to the entire Ring Cycle.
