José Luis Téllez

A Music of the Future URL:
Wagner represents the most transcendental step in the renewing not only of the scenic music, but of all the harmony and instrumentation of the 19th century: in this sense, the influence of his work is projected to all genres, and it could be said that none of his contemporaries and successors have remained immune to it. The liberation of chromaticism, the role of the orchestra as an organism with an importance equivalent (if not superior) to the voices, as well as the conception of the opera form as a continuous speech ruled by the principle of thematic development, imply a diametrical change of perspective, at the same time as it implies the absorption of symphony by opera. But Wagner is also responsible for a new scenic conception, materialized in Bayreuth under his own direction: Wagner did not only transform music, but the conception of the lyrical space itself.
