Presents an in-depth profile of the controversial German composer Richard Wagner, with a particular focus on his personal life, based on intensive research into the private papers of the Wagner family archives
Grokinos
I found this biography the best of them all, and I have read several biographies of Wagner. Mr. Watson manages to balance
the despicable character flaws of the composer with his incomparable musical genius. The final chapter in this book should be
a required reading to all wagnerites.
Yanthyr
Thorough and of a reasonable length.
Arar
complete and interesting--absent are his vastly accumulated writings that are completely anti-Jewish and quite sick-emphasized are his intellectual peaceful musical nicities--which were rare--I wonder what the author was afraid of?
Malann
An informed biography about a strange and sometimes a despicable man. The biographer takes the good and the bad and shows how he became one of the most amazing musicians in the world. Too bad about that Hitler thing, but I hope in time it can be taken back.
Kazijora
I've read a lot of books on Richard Wagner, and this is the one I'd recommend as the single best book.

Why?

Because, hard as it is to be fair in the treatment of a controversial figure like Wagner, Derek Watson succeeds. He doesn't gloss over Wagner's bad habits, chief of which are his abuse of friends and supporters, his virulent anti-Semitism, his self-indulgence, and his continuing problems regarding his own money and the money of others. Yet Watson also balances these vices with a bigger picture of the man's incredible creative abilities. He knew he was a genius, and others saw this too--to the extent that they willingly allowed themselves to be taken advantage of.

In addition to a fair and balanced summary of Wagner's life, there is a glossary of major figures in Wagner's life, and dozens of photographs of Wagner and his contemporaries. If I could have only a single book on Wagner, this would be my choice!
Laitchai
I found this book an excellent introduction to Wagner's life and works. It presents the Jekyll / Hyde personality of the composer while emphasizing his genius and his inability to accept mediocre performances of his, or anyone else's works. I found this book very readable and interesting throughout.
