About the Author

Michael P. Steinberg is president of the American Academy in Berlin and Barnaby Conrad and Mary Critchfield Keeney Professor of History and professor of music and German studies at Brown University. He is the author, most recently, of Judaism Musical and Unmusical, also published by the University of Chicago Press.


"After thirty years of writing on music in relation to history, politics, and ideology, Steinberg has produced the book he was brought into the world to write. The Trouble with Wagner explores Wagner ambivalence with unparalleled erudition, breathtaking mastery of the Ring, deep understanding of Wagner's conception of modernity, and an astonishing ability to integrate the history of performance into the story of how Wagner's work has been understood. The book is brilliant and riveting. The Trouble with Wagner will be discussed for many years to come."--Daniel Herwitz, Fredric G. L. Huetwell Professor, University of Michigan
