Biography

Wilhelm Richard Wagner was an influential German composer, conductor, music theorist and writer. He is primarily known for his operas, or music dramas as he later called them. His works, especially from the later period, characterized by contrapuntal texture, chromatic musical language, rich harmonic design and orchestration, and a well-developed use of leitmotifs: musical themes associated with specific people, places or events in the opera. Wagner contributed to the development of music with his idea of ​​the total work of art or entity artwork (which we know as the German das Gesamtkunstwerk) that culminated in the monumental tetralogy of the Ring 1876. Wagner was and remains a controversial person, both for its musical and dramatic contributions and for anti-Semitic and political affiliations.

In European classical music history, Wagner's music was an important step towards further use of the chromatic scale, as in twelve-tone music. Composers have also been inspired by Wagner's recurring musical themes, senromantikerne, minimalist composers and film composers.
