Program 7: After Wagner

This program illuminates a cultural world living in the shadow of Richard Wagner, and throws light on how a generation of composers responded to him. We also explore the influence of broader currents, from anti-Semitism to feminism to industrialization, and conclude in the late 1890s with riveting songs by Arnold Schoenberg and Hugo Wolf.
