Millington review parts 1-8 revised by 2/11/13

Post by alberich00 » Mon Feb 11, 2013 7:47 am

Dear Discussion Forum members and visitors:

This morning I completed a revision of parts 1-8 of my review of Barry Millington's book "The Sorcerer of Bayreuth." Part 1 dealt solely with his preface and "Tannhaeuser," while parts 2-8 dealt exclusively with his Chapter 7 on "Lohengrin," and a very similar essay entitled "Asking the Right Question," which was posted online in 2005 by the Seattle Opera. My revisions include some new material, so anybody desiring to read my final word on these chapters should look at my revisions.

Part's 9 onward will consider those of Millington's remaining chapters which I consider worthy of comment.
