Widely regarded as the most significant conductor of the 19th century Wagner was probably most responsible for launching the cult of the conductor as an omnipotent omniscient near-divine leader of musicians. His performances on the podium and his writings on conducting helped shape a generation of conductors just as his music shaped a generation of composers. This volume contains his most important essay on conducting.Contributors: Richard WagnerSeries: Dover EditionFormat: BookCategory: Textbook - General [via]
