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.
Richard Strauss died at the age of 85 on 8 September 1949. The conductor Georg Solti, who had arranged Strauss's 85th birthday celebration, also directed an orchestra during the burial. Strauss left a great musical legacy which had a profound influence on the development of 20th-century music.
