The word "struggle" (kampf) is a code word that appears in the writings of Wagner, his heirs, and Hitler (Mein Kampf). Composer Jorge Martín was born in 1959 in Santiago de Cuba, came to the United States in 1965, and has been an American citizen since 1984.
Her relationship with Hitler grew so close that by 1933 there were rumors of impending marriage. Far from an isolated rant, Louis’s writing represented a thread of Wagnerian myth running through the very fabric of modern musical thought.
