Wagner Overture to Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg WWV96
Mussorgsky The Great Gate of Kiev from Pictures at an Exhibition
It turns out great music can be inspired by all sorts of things – including tradesmen and trade guilds. For example Zar und Zimmermann, Tsar and Carpenter, is a comic opera set in shipyards. Max, the hero of Weber’s Der Freischütz is a forester and marksmen. Wagner’s Die Meistersinger features the 16th century Meistersinger (Master Singers) guild, an association of amateur artists who are master craftsmen. By contrast, The Great Gate of Kiev was written about looking at a painting by Hartmann. So who knows where inspiration can strike!
