I just read The Case of Wagner/ Nietzsche contra Wagner and selected Aphorisms we get a glimpse of Nietzsche’s relationship with Wagner, his thoughts and criticisms of music and musicians of his time. It is a case of tough love and a sharp and concise criticism of christianity, which he says is a blemish on man, of Germans in general.
You got to love Nietzsche for his honesty and his wit. If you are a musician and you read his criticism of Wagner, his friend, then you’d know the judges on America got talent or Idols are way too polite.
I loved the book 🙂
