By Karol Berger

Beyond Reason relates Wagner’s works to the philosophical and cultural principles of his time, centering at the 4 song dramas he created within the moment half his career: Der Ring des NibelungenTristan und IsoldeDie Meistersinger von Nürnberg, and Parsifal. Karol Berger seeks to penetrate the “secret” of large-scale shape in Wagner’s song dramas and to reply to these critics, so much prominently Nietzsche, who condemned Wagner for his putative lack of ability to weld small expressive gestures into better wholes. geared up through person opera, this can be crucial interpreting for either musicologists and Wagner experts.
