Waldweben

Richard Wagner
(1813-83)



"Waldweben" ("Forest Weaving") is an arrangement by Wagner himself for concert purposes of fragments of the second act of "Siegfried," describing the reveries of Siegfried amid the rustle of the forest, his slaying of the dragon, and his discovery that he can understand what the birds are saying to him after he has tasted the blood of the monster. It is one of the most delightful of the Wagner concert arrangements, though mainly repeating the music of the drama itself.
