Rabbinical courts to stop automatically placing financial burden on divorced fathers.02:39 02.12.15 | 0 comments
let's be clear here about the time and essence of this era of wagner. anti-semitism was quite common in europe and britain. those who complied had their "jewishness" overlooked. society was brimming with jewish socialites.. wagner's 'ring cycle' is really only great because it takes three days to perform. it is full of some of the most atrocious sounds ever to come from the stage, including boring melodies that would make a dog crawl under the table. and remember the subject matter is pagan 'middle-europe' mythology, all very nice for grimm's fairy tales, but not what one would call 'spitually inspiring'. stravinsky and katchaturian did the same thing with russian myhology, but with much greater musical and expressive expertise. i read isi's article, and while i respect his view of inappropriate representation at the beuruth festival, there are those who consider music from a technical point of view (like musicologists), and would be appreciating skills rather than content. wagner hated a lot of people, including many of his contemporaries, saying they didn't have a musical note in their body.
