The Wagner Society of New York will present two programs dealing with the major music figures Richard Wagner and Leonard Bernstein. On Friday, Dec. 7, at 7:30 p.m., well-known lecturer Saul Lilienstein, who was a student of Bernstein, will trace the progression of Wagner's orchestral inventions, beginning with his youthful works, and his influence on composer into the 20th century.

On Wednesday, Jan. 23, at 7:30 p.m., Michael Sherwin, music critic and recording engineer/producer, will focus on Bernstein's Wagnerian connections, including his 1973 Harvard lectures and his recording of “Tristan und Isolde”, in a talk titled “Leonard Bernstein at 100: A Master Wagnerian” .
Both programs will be at the Liederkranz Foundation, 6 East 87th St., Manhattan.
