Richard Strauss 1864-1949

Richard Strauss was born in Munich in 1864. His operas - Salome, Die Frau ohne Schatten (The Woman without a Shadow), Elektra and Der Rosenkavalier - are pillars of the international repertoire. Strauss's works are vast in scale and are characterised by a sensuous tonality. He produced many symphonic works before making the extremely successful transition to the world of great opera.
