Dr Barbara Eichner

Dr Barbara Eichner is Reader in Music at Oxford Brookes University. Since the completion of her monograph History in Mighty Sounds: Musical Constructions of German National Identity (1848-1914), she has increasingly turned to the investigation of Richard Wagner’s works in their cultural context. Most recently she has published a chapter in the Cambridge Companion to Wagner’s Ring about the critical reception of the Ring cycle, and a chapter on “Richard Wagner’s Medieval Visions” for the Oxford Handbook of Music and Medievalism. She enjoys giving pre-concert talks and is regularly invited to comment on Wagner broadcasts for BBC Opera on 3; recently she contributed to the Wagner edition of James MacMillan’s series Faith in Music on BBC Radio 4.
