As Heard On BACH Archives for 2014-05


May 22 is the birthdate, in 1833, of composer Richard Wagner.  Actually calling him "composer" only gives part of the picture of a very complex man.  He was also a conductor, theater director and controversial writer.   Not all composers can claim to have had a performance hall built specifically for them, but Wagner could:  the Bayreuth Festspielhaus (Bayreuth Festival Theatre).  Below are a few links to help you learn more about this Composer Plus:
