This is the first truly interdisciplinary collection devoted to the legacy of Richard Wagner to merge insights from Musicology and Music Theory with explorations of the composer’s vast socio-cultural impact from such fields as History, German, and Disability Studies. The wide ranging topics include Glenn Gould’s piano transcriptions, the value of naming musical themes in the music dramas, the status of Wagner in Israel, and the assignment of “Jewish” characteristics in both Wagner’s music and polemics and, in recent years, to his descendant, musicologist Gottfried Wagner. Contributors include Robert Gauldin, Warren Darcy, Marc Weiner, and Paul Rose.

Glenn Gould. Una vida a contratiempo, de Sandrine Revel
Astiberri, 2016 | Spanish | CBR | 136 págs. | 67.5 MB

Información dada por la editorial: Glenn Gould (1932-1982), genio de la música clásica, fascinó al mundo por su talento inaudito, la modernidad de sus interpretaciones y su extraña manera de tocar el piano, encorvado y tarareando con los ojos cerrados. Sandrine Revel recrea en viñetas la vida del pianista canadiense, tratando de comprender a la persona detrás del personaje, de acercarse a la vida interior de un genio solitario, frágil y atormentado, que afirmó en algún momento: “creía firmemente que todo el mundo compartía mi pasión por el cielo nublado. Me sorprendió mucho darme cuenta de que algunas personas preferían el sol”.

Parsifal (WWV 111) is an opera in three acts by Richard Wagner. It is loosely based on Parzival by Wolfram von Eschenbach, a 13th-century epic poem of the Arthurian knight Parzival (Percival) and his quest for the Holy Grail (12th century). Wagner first conceived the work in April 1857 but did not finish it until twenty-five years later. It was Wagner's last completed opera and in composing it he took advantage of the particular acoustics of his Bayreuth Festspielhaus. Parsifal was first produced at the second Bayreuth Festival in 1882. The Bayreuth Festival maintained a monopoly on Parsifal productions until 1903, when the opera was performed at the Metropolitan Opera in New York.

This recording of a live performance of MEISTERSINGER from Bayreuth 1957 definitely merits five stars. For those of you who don't already know this, Gustav Neidlinger (PeaceBeUponHim) was the undisputed master of Wagner's "howling-and-spitting" villain roles, Alberich and Klingsor, from the early 1950s until the mid 1970s. He sang with unmatched sulfur, cannon-ball density, huge volume, dark tone, and powerful dramatic interpretation. He sang more spontaneously and from-the-gut than most singers. He was the first of his generation to sing these roles with musical line and connected legato, rather than as a series of isolated shouts, grunts, and bellowings. He was typecast for these villainous roles as soon as he set foot on the stage, and almost never performed as a good-guy.

Instead of Leonard Bernstein, the Columbia Symphony Orchestra was fronted this time by Vladimir Golschmann. Born in Paris to Russian émigrés in 1893 and head of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra from 1931, Golschmann was one of the few conductors with whom Gould apparently never had problems, and vice versa. In the Beethoven concerto Gould played his own cadenza – with a noticeable nod to Max Reger ….

Among the projects that Columbia had arranged with Gould were the complete recordings of Bach’s solo keyboard works and the Beethoven sonatas. Both were to remain unfinished. Long after becoming a concert drop-out, Gould now planned to become a “record drop-out”: “My contract with CBS runs a bit beyond my 50th year. After that, there is going to be a major change of gears, much as there was twenty years ago.”
