Richard Wagner’s Tannhäuser Overture is one of the best compositions by the German composer
Here we are again with your favorite dog-music-lover. Today we have something strong, good and magnificent. I always have loved this fantastic composition. Tannhäuser is an opera in three acts based on the two German legends of Tannhäuser and the song contest at Wartburg.
The first performance was given in the Royal Theater in Dresden on 19 October 1845 and the first tenor who played Tannhäuser was Josef Aloys Tichatschek. The premiere was conducted by the own Richard Wagner.
Wagner had controversial opinions and his life was eccentric and strange but there’s something we forget sometimes: he was a genius of the music and Tannhäuser is a very good example of that.
This version is conducted by Herbert von Karajan.
I really hope you like it, dear music friends. Woof, woof!
