  •  Yes, Wagner can be lengthy ... (0+ / 0-)

    but I find it fascinating how his music evolves. I have sat through 'Parsifal' without getting bored. This was without following the story. The way the music evolves takes much time, so Act I of 'Die Goetterdaemmerung' and Act III of 'Die Meistersinger' are longer than some operas.
    I have collected a wide variety of classical music, so I am not just a Wagner fan. I am not Adolf Hitler. I have bought up Wagner's operas because I do not get much of a chance to hear them on the radio. I have only 2 of Verdi's operas and 3 of Puccini. I listen to Wagner from time to time, and most of the time I listen to other music.
    I would call Wagner an expert at grandeur and a genius at narrative music. I do see his limitations.
