Hi everyone! Since I am a brand spanking new member, I thought I'd introduce myself. I am German born and raised, but have lived in the U.S for the last 25 years. Most recently in Montana.

I just found Beethoven.com a few days ago and just love the site. Didn't realize that things can get this hot and heavy in a place where you'd think people are more unobtrusive and polished.

Anyhow since the Schumann/Brahms story had such an effect I thought I'd tell you about Wagner.

I heard that he and King Ludwig of Bavaria were very, very tight. So much so that Ludwig built him a beautiful little grotto in Linderhof, the King's little lust castle. And here I was brought up to believe that the gay/lesbian phenomenon is a modern thing.

UH, OH, I can see Mr. Molman's blood pressure rising, I better shut up now!
If not today, then tomorrow...maybe!

they were tight but I don't think in that way. Wagner was most certainly heterosexual.

AH, YES! There's nothing like stirring the pot a little. Just for fun though! ;)

Now, Bignaf, even most certain heterosexuals have certain downfalls and will do some pretty gross stuff to get what they want! :roll:

Gabbers-

KNOCK IT OFF! Do I need to remind you about the rules of the BBB? DO NOT PUT YOUR OFF COLOR COMMENTS ABOUT GAYS AND LESBIANS ON THE BBB! Homosexuality is not "gross" nor is it a "modern phenomenon". This stopic will go no further on the BBB. I am a moderator and will block this post if it goes further. Remember that people from around the world view this Board, and all have different lifestyles and choices. Be kind to everyone. If you don't agree with it, take it somewhere else.

Direct from the BBB Rules Page: (Reminder to all)
"- No personal attacks – Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and disagreements are bound to crop up. However, attacks based on someone’s education level, sex, race, creed, religion, sexual orientation, etc. will not be tolerated."

Hanging my head in shame, Nicole! :o

Didn't intend with my post what you read into it. Was stricly talking about the rather bizarre relationship between Wagner and Ludwig as it was related to me!

Please accept my appology!

Hi Gabbers,

Proper protocol is to address Nicole as "Y.R.H." (Your Royal Highness). Believe me, it's the only way to curry favor. :D ;) :cool:

Operatenor, thank you! One has to learn proper protocol on any new board one visits. It certainly helps when seasoned members point one in the right direction!

Ok, Y.R.H. Nicole Marie, I shall eat crow for the day. Please take me back into your good graces.

Borodin also was a Science teacher. He wrote music in his spare time and came up with my all-time fav. the Nocturne from String quartet #2.

YRH, where did Mr. Gab say that homosexuality is gross? and where did he attack someone?
BTW, most Brahms scholars agree that Brahms was in love with Clara and vice versa. there are some very hot letters between them. however no one can clain they know for sure that they have slept together (can they?). the Wagner story is plain gossip. (probably).
I should add that the brahms Clara relationship bacame platonic after Robert's death.
