The World's Greatest Music
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.
For his later operas, Strauss reverted to a more lush, melodic late-Romantic style. These works included the hugely successful Der Rosenkavalier (1911), Ariadne auf Naxos (1912), and Arabella (1932). Pictured here are Elisabeth Schwarzkopf and Sena Jurinac in a scene from Der Rosenkavalier at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden in 1959.
