About the talk
Wagner openly admired Berlioz and made frequent references to him in his writings. Berlioz, however, was much more reticent about Wagner. They attended each other’s performances, exchanged letters, and met on more than one occasion. Erica discusses the fascinating relationship between these eccentric masters, two of the most prominent geniuses of their time.
