By Richard Wagner

Genius, political activist, brilliant writer – that was the 19-century German composer Richard Wagner. Wagner wrote with the same intensity that characterized his powerful music. The two Wagner essays presented in this updated and expanded edition of Judaism in Music were published during the 1850s and 1860s, the period when Wagner was creating of "The Ring of the Nibelung" series of operas. In 1850 Wagner penned an article entitled "Judaism in Music," which caused such a firestorm that in 1869 he published an unapologetic letter entitled "Some Explanations Concerning 'Jews in Music'." This volume is introduced by Australian Revisionist historian Dr. Fredrick Töben and concludes with an esay correcting the historical record about Wagner written by the late Andrew Gray. As an added bonus, we have included Mark Twain's remembrances of the time he went to hear Wagner performed at Bayreuth. This special edition of Judaism in Music was compiled and edited by TBR's Ronald Ray, an unabashed Germanophile.
