Tannhäuser Overture: 1845

Tannhäuser is just too silly for me to take the plot seriously, but you can read about it if you wish. This is one of the most popular and famous of all Wagner’s orchestral works.

Tannhäuser, Act III Prelude: 1845

This is beautiful music, and I don’t know it. But it must come just before Act III because of the name, “prelude”.
