About the Author:

Barry Millington is the editor of The Wagner Journal. He lives in England.

From Library Journal:

This compendium is a very useful source for information on all aspects of Wagner and his music. It offers a calendar of his life; biographical sketches of his contemporaries; historical and intellectual background; and evaluation of his influences, opinions, prose works, and legacy. Eighteen Wagner authorities contribute to this broadly based and encyclopedic study of one of the most influential and controversial artists of the 19th century. The individual studies are clear, concise, and packed full with the most up-to-date information. This admirable undertaking is an indispensable reference tool for serious music collections.
