Wagner’s operas represent a special challenge for conductors. As well as being an important innovator in the field of opera music, decisively changing the course of the development of this musical-theatrical form, Richard Wagner was also a key figure in the field of conducting. He occupied himself with the theory and practice of orchestral conducting not only on the concert stage and in the theatre pit, but also in his book On Conducting (1869), which extensively upgraded the conducting tradition and technique that had previously been developed by Felix Mendelssohn and Hector Berlioz.
