Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: One of the greatest of comic operas, here is an extraordinarily adept and vivacious wedding of libretto and musical score. Meticulously reproduced from the definitive C. F. Peters edition. Features lay-flat sewn binding. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: This beloved operatic work combines profound emotion and great comedy to tell the tale of a young knight and his struggle to become a Mastersinger. Wagner's only comedy, for which he wrote both the words and the music, offers an extraordinarily adept coupling of libretto and musical score.
This Dover edition is a reprint of an authoritative and accessible German score from the turn of the twentieth century. It contains the vocal parts as well as the full orchestral score for the three-act opera. English translations cover the introduction and cast lists; the rest of the text is in the original German. Durable but inexpensive, this edition features a sturdy binding that allows pages to remain open on music stands for years of use and enjoyment.
Review: This is the complete orchestral and vocal score of Richard Wagner's magnificent work, an opera which combines profound emotion and great moments of comedy with wonderful, accessible music. A reproduction of a now out-of-copyright turn-of-the-century score from a German publisher, it has English translations of the introduction and cast list -- but English translations nowhere else. This is likely to be too bulky for singers, for whom standard piano-vocal scores will be more useful, but it's an invaluable tool for the student or enthusiast.
