Herr Richard Wagner was born May 22, 1813. He is doubtless the best known German opera composer of the 19th century. He had plenty of artistic temperament and zeal. He did not lack Ambition; he liked to think “BIG“.
Some of his operas retell Northern mythology with a lot of sweeping, muscular music. Rhinos like our music packed with Gusto, right? You bet.
Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum Geburtstag!, Herr Wagner, say We.
