About this Event

Kevin will explore the changing relationship between Liszt and Wagner, from Wagner’s initial fawning approaches to the famous Liszt, through their years of deep friendship, their falling out when Wagner and Cosima got together and their final reconciliation as Bayreuth took shape. Throughout Kevin will look at musical influences passing backwards and forwards between the two.

Kevin Stephen has had a portfolio career in music and opera including stints as a publisher, author, critic, festival director, administrator, consultant, lecturer and tutor on the Rose Bruford opera degree course. He spends time as a pub pianist, a season at Butlins and many appearances live on the stage of the Royal Opera House.
