Eduard Hanslick

The controversial music critic Eduard Hanslick was born in Prague on 11 September 1825. At first an admirer of Wagner, his attitude changed, and his biting criticism found its mark, many times over. Nowadays we can see this in perspective and admire Hanslick's critical faculties and excellent prose. He died in Baden on 6 August 1904.
