Richard Wagner

Richard Wagner was a German composer, poet and writer, who led the music of the Romantic era with his opulent works to its climax. He was the first composer to write "music dramas" as a synthesis of the arts (“Gesamtkunstwerk”) by providing the dramatic actions with libretti, music and stage directions. He is considered one of the most important innovators of European music in the 19th century.
