The great German composer was born 150 years ago in 1864. From Der Rosenkavalier to the revolutionary opera Salome, from Also Sprach Zarathustra to Four Last Songs, Strauss’s music is well worth discovering.
Strauss's opera Elektra took his use of musical dissonance even further. Based on a character from Greek mythology, Elektra is one of the most demanding roles in the dramatic soprano repertoire. It was also the first opera in which Strauss collaborated with the poet Hugo von Hofmannsthal. They subsequently worked together on numerous major works.
