“Thanks to the edition Complete Letters, one can – where possible – draw on an authentic and also reliably commented text for the first time. This edition is a centenary edition in the best sense. For a better understanding of the letters, the thematic commentaries are helpful, and the reader is advised to read those first; with their necessary conciseness they provide an overview over the time span each volume is covering.”
(Werner P. Seiferth, Der Neue Merker)
The Complete Edition for Subscription
With the publications of Volume 10 and 11 in 1999 and 2000, Werner Breig’s fundamentally new scholarly concept of Richard Wagner’s complete letters begins to make itself felt more strongly. The meticulously annotated volumes are illustrated with facsimiles and little known photos. Further enhancing the value of this edition are a number of letters, which were hitherto practically unavailable and are published here for the first time. The commentaries are based on many previously unpublished documents.
