The Richard Wagner Archive
(Hannu Salmi)
The Richard Wagner Archive is distinct from most musical sites in that the emphasis is upon written content. Even more distinctive is the quality of the writing. The underlying aim is to locate Wagner within a cultural and historical context. In other words, Wagner is given the kind of serious consideration that the great man himself demanded and merited. Thankfully, the Archive is not as overwhelming as a Wagnerian opera or as daunting as the approach might imply. The depth of the site is mitigated by ease of navigation and management. The writing is as intelligible as it is informative. Various pictures and links to sound files complement the written content. You'll emerge from the Archive with a greater understanding and appreciation--both of the man and the music.
