Richard Wagner


German composer and poet who was a controversial and fascinating genius of the European artistic scene. He was known for writing dramatic operas with a revolutionary technique and did his first symphony at the age of 19. Largely self educated, he became the music director at theatres in Magdeburg 1834-1836, Konigsberg in 1836 and Riga 1837-1842. Participation in the 1849 revolution forced Wagner into exile in Switzerland during which his style of opera changed and he began writing operas in the early 50's. With his second wife, Cosima Liszt, they settled in Bayreuth, where together they developed the Bayreuth Festival opening in 1876, continuing even after their deaths.

In 1870,* he authored an autobiography entitled "My Life," which detailed a tragic and sordid personal life full of financial, moral and marital difficulties. He is also known for his strong anti-semitic traits leading to the German nationalism.

Wagner married Minna Planer in 1836 and they separated in 1861. Following a series of love affairs, the most famous of which was with Mathilde Wesendonck, Wagner married Cosima Liszt and they had three kids. Their son, Siegfried (1869-1930), carried on the tradition of the Bayreuth Festival. Wagner died of a heart attack on 13 February 1883, Venice, Italy.

An astronomically correct calculation, taking into account atmospheric refraction and the size of the solar disc, shows that the upper limb of the Sun appeared on the horizon exactly at 4:00 am. This gives a Taurus rising. The time of birth has been changed to 4:00 am on 9 June 2015 by atr.
