Today’s Music for a Lovely Sunday Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman

Woof, woof, my friends! Years ago, I really liked Wagner. Even, I listened to The Ring of the Nibelung in just two days! Maybe I have changed my mind in these days and I prefer now more baroque compositions but I must confess that Richard Wagner definitely changed something in music and he is, for many reasons, one of the most influential composers in the history of music. His leitmotifs, his structures, his particular sense of mixing music and scenarios, his very personal and extreme chromaticism… everything in Wagner is different and classical at the same time.

We all remember Tristan und Isolde, the March of the Valkyries from The Ring of the Nibelung…. but today we are going to try something different, The Flying Dutchman (Der fliegende Holländer). This version is conducted by Otto Klemperer for the BBC Chorus & New Philharmonia Orchestra. It was recorded in 1968
