EXP 20-27 E: Wagner's Ring Cycle, Episode 5, 4/10/2020

From The WFMT Radio Network | Part of the Exploring Music with Bill McGlaughlin series | 58:59

Exploring_music_logo_small For most operas, a five-hour survey would more than cover every measure, every note – but not this one, Wagner’s crowning achievement. Bill helps us understand and enjoy this long and fanciful journey, with richly textured music that continues to grow in complexity as the operas proceed. Wagner spent a quarter of a century writing the libretto and composing the music that follows the dramatic struggles of gods, heroes, and mythical creatures. We will listen to orchestral preludes, arias, and more from The Rhinegold, The Valkyrie, Siegfried, and Twilight of the Gods. Episode 5 of 5.
