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 heard his first Wagner operas, Lohengrin and Tannhäuser, in 1874. At first, his father banned the youth from studying Wagner’s music. It was not until the age of 16 that Richard was able to obtain a score of Tristan und Isolde. Wagner's music made a profound impact on his musical development.
