Two topics:

1) Richard Wagner (1813-83) was highly influential on contemporary figures and later generations both through his compositions and his writings about music, perhaps more than any other 19th c. composer. Write an essay in two parts discussing first at least two (2) of his theories concerning music, then citing the application of these theories in at least one (1) of his works. Additionally please link your observations to at least one (1) of the trends discussed in chapter 7.

 

2)From its conception as a work, Bizet’s Carmen (1875) was controversial, but ultimately proved to be very popular. Summarize the story of this opera, highlighting the librettists & composer(s), their struggles to produce the opera, and its legacy today. You may also wish to highlight musical features of the score. Finally please link your observations to one (1) of the trends discussed in chapter 7.
