This week, we're honoring the birthday of the legendary composer Richard Wagner by talking about why I don't like his music very much! I welcome in the great conductor Rafael Payare(who loves Wagner) to discuss the issues with Wagner's music, from its length, scope, and visceral quality, to its troubling associations with anti-Semitism and Nationalist movements. Whether you worship Wagner's music or can't stand it, this show is the one for you. Perhaps one of us will even change your mind! Thanks for listening!
