May 17, 2013
ST. PAUL, Minn. —
Every weekday morning at 10 a.m., the hosts at Classical MPR play a stand-out work based on the theme for the week. We call them Morning Glories.
This week we're featuring five Wagnerian Morning Glories, as we note the composer's 200th birthday.
Prelude and Liebestod, from Tristan und Isolde
Richard Wagner born May 22, 1813
Tannhauser: Overture and Venusberg Music
The Lighter Side: We'll hear a few spoofs and affectionate parodies, prompted by Wagner's music.
