Richard Strauss
(1864 - 1949)

Richard Strauss


"I am not blessed with long melodies as Mozart was, I only get as far as short themes."


An outstanding German Romantic composer of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His symphonic poems of the 1890s and his operas of the following decade have remained an indispensable feature of the standard repertoire throughout the 20th century.
