Siegfried Wagner, in spite of his parentage, seems to have founded his style principally upon that of Humperdinck.
Humperdinck, of course, whom I recognized in a minute from his photos.
Humperdinck's music reproduces, with infinite art, the tender and childlike charm of the delightful old fairy tale.
Humperdinck's melody is founded upon the Volkslied, and he uses at least one nursery tune with charming effect.
Humperdinck's lovely Hansel and Gretel has given him a place of importance.
Humperdinck is the first German operatic composer of distinct individuality since the death of Wagner.
