Written for Wagner's second wife, Cosima, and his patron, King Ludwig II, My Life runs from the composer's birth in 1813 up to 1864, and presents a sweeping view of Wagner's times and contemporaries, offering too a unique perspective on his operas. Contents written down by the composer's wife, as he dictated them over a period of several years, because she wished him to tell the story of his life. Includes an Index. Translated into English from the German by Andrew Gray.
