August Klughardt

Klughardt August

August Klughardt was a German composer and conductor. He intended to create a synthesis of these dissimilar tendencies. In his operas, he used Wagner's leitmotif technique, but he held to the older number opera instead of Wagner's through-composed music-drama. Some of his compositions show Klughardt as a child of his times, for example his choral work Die Grenzberichtigung, which was composed when Germany won the Franco-Prussian war in 1870/71.
