Wagner for the piano - two excellent new Wagner recordings
by The Editor
Numen Books recently released two recordings of Wagnerian piano recitals by the intellectual historian Dr. Alexander Jacob. During the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, complete piano adaptations of Der Ring des Nibelungen and Parsifal intended for solo piano as well as duet, were made by composers like Richard Kleinmichel (1846-1901), Karl Klindworth (1830-1916) and Hermann Behn (1859-1927). It is especially satisfying therefore that solo piano transcriptions of these works have now been recorded by Alexander Jacob for Numen Books. They are valuable listening for all fans of Wagner's musical aesthetics and artistic vision.
