Johann Baptist Wanhal http://wrti.org en 1813: Wagner, Vanhal, Beethoven on Discoveries from the Fleisher Collection http://wrti.org/post/1813-wagner-vanhal-beethoven-discoveries-fleisher-collection <p><strong>Discoveries from the Fleisher Collection broadcasts Saturday, September 7th, 5 to 6 pm.&nbsp;</strong>The two most famous composers for whom 2013 is a bicentennial are Richard Wagner and Giuseppe Verdi. They were born in 1813, but in the spirit of Discoveries we’ll dig a little deeper to see what else happened that year.<br><br>Wagner’s <em>Wesendonck</em> songs and <em>Siegfried Idyll</em> are his only non-operatic works heard with any regularity these days. The songs are also unusual among his output because the words are by someone else (most of the time he set his own texts).<br> Sat, 07 Sep 2013 15:52:37 +0000 Kile Smith 6402 at http://wrti.org 1813: Wagner, Vanhal, Beethoven on Discoveries from the Fleisher Collection
