Richard Wagner's <I>Beethoven</I> (1870): A New Translation (Hardback)Roger Allen (author)
- We can order this from the publisher
Until now the English reader with no access to the German original has been obliged to work from two Victorian translations. This brand new edition gives the German original and the newly translated English text on facing pages. It comes along with a substantial introduction placing the essay not only within the wider historical and intellectual context of Wagner's later thought but also in the political context of the establishment of the German Empire in the 1870s. The translation is annotated throughout with a full bibliography. Richard Wagner's Beethoven will be indispensable reading for historians and musicologists as well as those interested in Wagner's philosophy and the aesthetics of music.
ROGER ALLEN is Fellow and Tutor in Music at St Peter's College, Oxford.
