    Music The hateful side of Wagner's musical genius. Famous German composer Richard Wagner was a vehement anti-Semite. But he also admired Jews like poet Heinrich Heine and had both Jewish patrons. Richard Wagner was born in Leipzig, at No. 3, the Brühl (The House of the Red and White Lions), in the Jewish quarter. He was however an ethnic German, the ninth child of Carl Friedrich Wagner, who was a clerk in the Leipzig police service, and his wife, Johanna Rosine (née Paetz), the daughter of a baker.

    In his book, József chastises Wagner for his attack on Jews. He says he writes against the musician Richard Wagner, not as the musical József Engel but rather as the Jew József Engel against the Christian Richard Wagner. Basically, his message to Wagner is, you make great music, but keep your politics and your hatred of Jews out of your art. Composer Richard Wagner lived in Dresden longer than in any other city. He influenced the musical life of the metropolis on the Elbe River, but the city also shaped him. We retrace Wagner's path.

    Wagner even went so far as to build his own opera-house to try to stage these works as he had imagined them. His literary friendship with Franz Liszt led to a long-lived correspondence later compiled in the two volumes of Corrrespondence of Wagner and Liszt (); a book that was attributed to both musicians.
