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.
Strauss’s early works were quite conservative but they began to develop and change when he met Alexander Ritter, a composer and violinist who was the husband of one of Wagner's nieces. Ritter persuaded Strauss to abandon the musical style of his youth, and begin writing tone poems.
