This latest installment in the Great Composers series focuses on the life and times of Richard Wagner. 

From the influence of Beethoven to the transcendental properties of his greatest music, Wagner’s work became a cornerstone of European musical culture – but what kind of journey took him towards this remarkable achievement? In this fascinating audio biography written by Davinia Caddy and narrated by Nicholas Boulton, we hear about Wagner’s tempestuous personal life, his controversial political views, and his struggles to establish himself as one of the most influential musical visionaries of the 19th century. 

The narrative is illustrated with excerpts from his best-loved operas, including the Ring cycle, Tristan und Isolde, Lohengrin, Der fliegende Holländer, Parsifal, and more.
