Once he had completed the score of "Lohengrin", Wagner asked Breitkopf & Härtel to use discretion in publicizing it so as not to lessen "Tannhäuser’s" chances of success: "With respect to the distribution of the score of ‘Lohengrin’, I kindly ask you to have patience before attempting to establish it successfully. My ‘Tannhäuser’ must make its breakthrough before we can even start thinking of ‘Lohengrin’. I have assured the theaters of this and they know that a good production of ‘Tannhäuser’ is a precondition for ‘Lohengrin’. The experience they gain through the performers and performance style of ‘Tannhäuser’ will allow them to do ‘Lohengrin’ practically by itself.” The composer withdrew his request, however, since the publishers were unable to call back all the scores they had sent out. To this day, though, the publisher still reserves a "Tannhäuser" for everyone ordering "Lohengrin", just as Wagner would have wanted it...


Im Sommer 1861 kommt es zur endgultigen Trennung des Ehepaars Wagner. Nach Auflosung des gemeinsamen Pariser Haushalts lasst sich Minna Wagner in Dresden nieder wo sie ihre letzten Lebensjahre verbringt. All dies ist in den Briefen detailliert nachzulesen daneben aber auch die kunstlerischen Erfolge des Jahres: In Frankfurt dirigiert Wagner zum ersten Mal seinen ,,Lohengrin (zwolf Jahre nach der Urauffuhrung!) in Leipzig stellt er die ,,Meistersinger-Ouverture vor und in Wien veranstaltet er Konzerte mit Szenen aus seinen Opern. Biographisch einschneidend sind die vollstandige Amnestierung - nun darf Wagner auch wieder den Boden seiner sachsischen Heimat betreten - sowie die weitere Entfremdung und schliesslich die endgultige Trennung von seiner Ehefrau Minna.
