Description

To some he is the creator of divine music, to others he is history's most controversial composer: 150 years after the world premiere of his famous Meistersinger von Nurnberg, Richard Wagner and his legacy that was tainted by both his own difficult personality and the usurpation of his music by Adolf Hitler, are still topics of lively debate.

Join Historian Anette Isaacs for a fascinating discussion of how the music and the legacy of Richard Wagner are received in her native country Germany today, more than seven decades after the demise of Hitler's Nazi Regime.

This program is part of the Chicago YIVO Society 2018 Summer Festival of Yiddish Culture.
