About this playlist

Richard Strauss was a German Romantic composer and conductor, remembered for his stylistically eclectic operas and tone poems (such as “Also Sprach Zarathustra”). The last decade of the 19th century marks a period of expressive and harmonically complex works and the peak of this composer's art of orchestration, including revolutionary operas Elektra, Salome and the tone poem Tod und Verklärung.
