ALEX ROSS: "WAGNERISM" (USC Max Kade Institute, USC Thornton School of Music)
Alex Ross will discuss his new book "Wagnerism: Art and Politics in the Shadow of Music", which reveals how Richard Wagner became the proving ground for modern art and politics - an aesthetic war zone where the Western world wrestled with its capacity for beauty and violence - and restores the magnificent confusion of what it means to be a Wagnerian.
Date: Friday 30 October 2020
Time: 1:00 pm PST (online)
