Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 231 x 157 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. William Kinderman s detailed study of Parsifal, described by the composer as his last card, explores the evolution of the text and music of this inexhaustible yet highly controversial music drama across Wagner s entire career, and offers a reassessment of the ideological and political history of Parsifal, shedding new light on the connection of Wagner s legacy to the rise of National Socialism in Germany. The compositional genesis is traced through many unfamiliar manuscript sources, revealing unsuspected models and veiled connections to Wagner s earlier works. Fresh analytic perspectives are revealed, casting the dramatic meaning of Parsifal in a new light. Much debated aspects of the work, such as Kundry s death at the conclusion, are discussed in the context of its stage history. Path-breaking as well is Kinderman s analysis of the religious and ideological context of Parsifal. During the half-century after the composer s death, the Wagner family and the so-called Bayreuth circle sought to exploit Wagner s work for political purposes, thereby promoting racial nationalism and anti-Semitism. Hitherto unnoticed connections between Hitler and Wagner s legacy at Bayreuth are explored here, while differences between the composer s politics as an 1849 revolutionary and the later response of his family to National Socialism are weighed in a nuanced account. Kinderman combines new historical research, sensitive aesthetic criticism, and probing philosophical reflection in this most intensive examination of Wagner s culminating music drama.
