CLASSICAL OPUS no.51

Richard Wagner: “Walkürenritt”

リチャード・ワグナー:「バルキリーライド」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 5 minutes

This timelessly climactic delirium of awe-inspiring mythomania suffocates listeners with its programmatic, slippery angst.  For this Minotaur of Romanticism, the musical fabric and leitmotif analysis became eponymous for the eventually futile quest of a “complete” artwork.  But myth, desire, sensuality and destiny were all convulsed in the historical – and artistic – trajectory of Germany’s 19th century rise.

A REFLECTION

Over all the hills now

Repose

In all the trees now

Shows

Barely a breath.  Birds are through

That sang in their wood to the west

Only wait, traveler.  Rest

Soon for you too.

 

Wolfgang Goethe: “Song of the Traveler at Evening”
