Richard-Wagner-Year 2013 in Leipzig

Leipzig has always been a city with a great tradition in music. Famous composers like Johann Sebastian Bach or Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy left their artistic traces all over the city. But Richard Wagner is the only one of them who spent his childhood and youth in Leipzig. Many of his former residence and working places can be visited today.
He was born on May 22nd 1823 in the house “Zum Roten und Weißen Löwen” as the ninth child of the Wagner family. After his stepfather’s death he lived in his uncle’s “Königshaus” at the market, which was splendidly furnished at that time. Later he visited Nikolai school and Thomas school, where he got lessons in music by the cantor. His career also started in Leipzig, where his overture “Paukenschlag” was performed in the theatre “Randstädter Bastei”. The d-Moll overture, like many of his later works, was performed in the old Gewandhaus concert hall.
