Product Details

Watch this debate over the two giants of 19th century opera. Hosted by Stephen Fry and complete with a full orchestra playing some of each composer's finest works, this debate serves as a nice introduction to the life and music of Verdi and Wagner. Norman Lebrecht argues that Verdi is ultimately the more popular composer and not without good reason. Philip Hensher argues that Wagner is the more complex composer who is able to bring to his stories the emotional characters that a novelist can. Great selections of music from each composer are inserted throughout the debate.
