Product description

Review

After reading this book, only the most unadventurous reader would turn down the chance to see Wagner's masterpiece.

[Scruton] lays out his argument in a clear, coherent, and readable manner. . . . An admirable, welcome effort to illuminate one of the most significant artistic achievements of the modern age.

Definitive . . . Scruton's presentation is grounded throughout in a deep understanding of the culture of Wagner's era . . . the writing is clear and persuasive . . . Highly recommended without reservation to the cognoscenti, who will profit enormously from this impressive scholarship.

Book Description

A magnificent book by a famous author on perhaps the greatest of all musical works
