Notes and Editorial Reviews

Often overlooked by music historians and Wagner fans alike, these pieces from the early days of Wagner's career display shining examples of what would characterize his later brilliance. Influenced to a large degree by Von Weber, who had recently created a trend toward a national German opera, as well as Beethoven, the young Wagner was an autodidact who began creating important musical works at the age of 17. The pieces compiled here, conducted by the fine Oleg Caetani, are essential elements of Wagner's unforgettable oeuvre.
