Richard Wagner, 1867

The British Library Music Department has marked the 200th anniversary of Wagner’s birth by publishing some of the  manuscripts of his works from their collections.

This includes some rarely encountered works  from his early years and also features drafts and sketches which can give a valuable insight into his working practices.

The materials may be viewed on the British Library Music Blog at this link:
