WS Scotland - ‘Wagner’s Die Meistersinger: Renunciation of Self and the World’

All talks begin at 18:30 and conclude at 20:30 with a short break halfway through

John Willmett was a music teacher in schools, latterly at Daniel Stewarts and Melville College. He has doctorates in Music and Religious Studies, and was president of the Edinburgh Society of Musicians. He is writing a book on C. G. Jung’s pupil, Scottish analytical psychologist Maurice Nicoll. John will speak about the renunciation of self and the world, mythicized in the symbols of the world of medieval guilds, and articulated in the Romantic understanding of the musical language of J. S. Bach.

John's talk will be delivered online over Zoom, free to RWVI members and visitors. Start and end times for talks are published on the Wagner Society of Scotland website.
