In Das Rheingold, with its "relentlessly talky 'realism' [and] the absence of lyrical ' numbers '", [159] Wagner came very close to the musical ideals of his 1849–51 essays. Wagner's musical training was largely left to chance until he was 18, when he studied with Theodor Weinlig in Leipzig for a year. Millington has commented: [Wagner's] protean abundance meant that he could inspire the use of literary motif in many a novel employing interior monologue ; ... the Symbolists saw him as a mystic hierophant; the Decadents found many a frisson in his work. [211] Friedrich Nietzsche was a member of Wagner's inner circle during the early 1870s, and his first published work, The Birth of Tragedy, proposed Wagner's music as the Dionysian "rebirth" of European culture in opposition to Apollonian rationalist "decadence".

Interestingly, in 1846 the Duchess of Parma wrote that “Verdi’s popularity will pass because he has much talent but precious little education, and a new genius may be born who will take music along a different, more scientific route.” She was wrong in one sense but right in another. By-and-by all of these will appreciate the folly of this, and, profiting genuinely by the work he has done, they will develop music of spontaneous and genuine power. As Thomas Mann remarked, this is a literary idea—the idea, that is, of the creation of the world—expressed by musical means.
