Wagner Parsifal (Facsimile)
Wagner wrote the autograph score almost entirely in violet ink, a colour he preferred to use in the final years of his life. As the printed score was not yet finished for the premiere on 26 July 1882, this carefully written autograph lay on the conductor’s desk in its stead.
The facsimile edition in high-quality four-colour printing reproduces the extensive score in its original size. Act and bar numbers on every page facilitate its use without diminishing the overall bibliophile appearance.
In an accompanying essay (Ger/Eng), Ulrich Konrad elucidates the special features of the work and the manuscript.
