Richard Wagner

Romantic

Richard Wagner was born on 22 May, 1813 in Leipzig. His stepfather Ludwig Geyer was a gifted actor, painter and writer whose artistic nature influenced Richard’s decision to start learning music in 1828. During the decade of 1833-43 Wagner constantly moved from one place to another. When in Riga he wrote his first operas: “Die Feen” and “Das Liebesverbot”

Richard Wagner, famous in the first place for his operas, left an exceptionally rich compositional legacy. His contribution to the genre of opera is indubitable and substantial: just compare him to the majority of the venerable composers of his time who totally neglected it, and, fancy that, there is but one opera divided between Beethoven, Brahms and Bach. Anyway, Wagner took credit not only for his operas but for the brilliant orchestral skills and outstanding scale of thinking. In his libretti his own philosophical ideas were prominently expressed, and never did he consider opera a solely entertaining genre. He was confined by the conventional judgement not unlike Mahler later on, but even if The Ring of the Nibelung is inferior in scale to the eighth symphony of the former with up to a thousand participants involved, Wagner’s opera with a total playing time of about 15 hours is hard to beat. Wagner’s impact on music is hard to overestimate, and anybody who looks through our catalogue of works of the great German composer will definitely agree with the statement. You will find sheet music of the original works of the composer as well as numerous arrangements for various instruments. Some of them, namely 108 can be downloaded for free. We have tried hard to help you find everything you are interested in.
