Richard Wagner

Wagner (1813-1883) was a German composer best remembered for his grand operas. Wagner revolutionized dramatic music with his concept of the "total art work." His style and subject matter was grandiose, seeking to fuse classical Greek ideals with Germanic legend. His greatest works include: Ride of the Valkyries and the Bridal Chorus.
