RICHARD WAGNER

‘THE MUSIC OF THE FUTURE’, Vincent Day Brooks & Sons for Vanity Fair 1877

Full length image of the composer Richard Wagner. Chromolithograph, 33 x 19 cm.

Note
Richard Wagner (1813-1883) was a German opera composer and key figure in the development of late Romantic music. He stretched the tonal systems of his day, using chromaticism for dramatic effect. Wagner also introduced the concept of the leitmotiv in his operatic plot development, a recurring musical theme associated with a particular person, place, or idea.
