This is the first truly interdisciplinary collection devoted to the legacy of Richard Wagner to merge insights from Musicology and Music Theory with explorations of the composer's vast socio-cultural impact from such fields as History, German, and Disability Studies.  The wide ranging topics include Glenn Gould's piano transcriptions, the value of naming musical themes in the music dramas, the status of Wagner in Israel, and the assignment of "Jewish" characteristics in both Wagner's music and polemics and, in recent years, to his descendant, musicologist Gottfried Wagner. Contributors include Robert Gauldin, Warren Darcy, Marc Weiner, and Paul Rose.

Review:

"The promise is great: a 'dissonant' reading of Wagner's operas for the 'New' Millennium. This rich and varied account of Wagner as understood at the beginning of the 21st century summarizes and continues those powerful debates that so marked the close of the 20th century: the debate about Wagner and anti-Semitism leads now into an original reading of 'Wagner and disability'; studies examine 'Wagner and performance' from Glenn Gould to contemporary Israel; essays on the opera's structure and its meanings ask difficult questions for our time. A valuable addition to your Wagner library."--Sander L. Gilman, Emory University 
 
"This collection of essays offers ample evidence that our fascination with Wagner and his works continues unabated across the millennial divide, both in the popular and the scholarly realms. The papers in this collection focus primarily on Wagner's still disturbing anti-Semitism, and on crucial aspects of his formidable compositional technique--associative musical themes, harmonic and tonal structure, and formal structure. Both cultural historians and musical scholars will find much of interest here."--Patrick McCreless, Yale University
