Philosophy and music synched

Without limiting or reducing either aspect, the author delves into Wagner's music and the philosophy that inspired and shaped it. It inspired me to a lot of further reading and rereading of Kant and Schopenhauer. A deeply intellectually stimulating book. Plus well and clearly written.
