9781580462884: Wagner and Venice (Eastman Studies in Music)

Richard Wagner had a longstanding love affair with the city of Venice. His sudden death there in 1883 also initiated a process through which Wagner and his reputation were integrated into Venice's own cumulative cultural image.
In Wagner and Venice, John Barker examines the connections between the great composer and the great city. The author traces patterns of Wagner's visits to Venice during his lifetime, considers what the city came to mean to Wagner, and investigates the details surrounding his death. Barker also examines how Venice viewed Wagner, by analyzing the landmark presentation of Wagner's Ring cycle two months after the composer's death, and by considering Venice's subsequent extensive Wagner celebrations and commemorations.
Throughout the volume, biographical detail from new and previously unavailable sources provides readers with a fresh interpretation of this seminal figure. Those already familiar with Wagner's life will find new information about, and insights into, the man and his career, while simultaneously discovering a neglected corner of Italian and Venetian cultural history.

About the Author :

John W. Barker is Emeritus Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, specializing in Medieval (including Venetian) History. He is also a passionate music lover and record collector, and an active music critic and journalist.

Review :

The strength of this study is to have assembled a series of works by fourteen -- mostly German-language -- authors, . . . many [of which] have remained outside the reach of mainstream audiences but deserve renewed critical analysis. Succeeds in drawing attention to a vast body of Wagner fiction, in the process correcting some distorted assumptions. . . . Barker probes in nuanced ways [Egon Gunther's] "postmodern" sensibility. Cosima's character picture itself receives some nuanced reassessment." --Monatshefte

As the author of a book on Wagner's death in Venice, John Barker is well poised to survey the many works of fiction on the topic, most of which are unknown to the Wagner community. In the interplay between his analysis and excerpts from the novels, Barker gives loving detail to the divergence from reality in these fictional accounts. The material is fascinating and opens many doors for the musicological community. --Karen Painter, author of Symphonic Aspirations: German Music and Politics, 1900-1945

A huge amount of material not previously available first-hand observations and analyses. The amount of detail here is astonishing. Forty-six black-and-white photos bring people and places to life ... A loving tribute to Wagner and Venice. --American Record Guide
