Elective Affinity - The Philosopher and Musician Friedrich Nietzsche
Sydney Conservatorium of Music
Thursday 27 March 2014 6:30pm 
Recital Hall West
Following their first meeting in 1868, Richard Wagner and Friedrich Nietzsche pursued an enthusiastic friendship for a time culminating with Nietzsche's frequent visits to Wagner in Tribschen while resident in Basle. Nietzsche, a self-taught and passionate musician saw in Wagner a capacity and charisma to transform and renew culture and determine the path of modernity. Wagner recognised in Nietzsche the intellectual and rhetorical power to further his vision and ambition for Bayreuth. Their relationship declined rapidly when Nietzsche's philosophical intuition demanded a comprehensive articulation of the phenomenon of Wagner and a re-examination of the value of (his) music to modernity. 

This concert features music by Friedrich Nietzsche, Richard Wagner and the Nietzsche-friend Gustav Krug with a substantial introduction to Nietzsche and Music by Goetz Richter.
