Happy 90th Birthday, Dr. Wolfgang Plenio!
Exemplary Writings by Dr. Wolfgang Plenio, a retired gymnasium professor, who lives near Flensburg, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. In 1973, Wolfgang, who was born in 1930, was Yogi Reppmann’s Latin tutor in secondary school. Excerpts from his body of thought, drawn from the correspondence between Plenio and Reppmann over the years, are contained in this booklet. E.g. "A Journey through the Greek World of Thought"; "America (Dvořák; Heidelberg 1948)"; "On the Impossibility and the Prospect of Being a Christian Today"; "The Significance of Music in European Culture".
Plenio's classical music reviews were more than just reports describing what had been seen and heard. His extensive knowledge flowed, expanding the horizons of his readers. Many of his contributions published decades ago are still as relevant today as they were then. Wolfgang Plenio, a critic with staying power—a stroke of luck for all of us.
