RICHARD STRAUSS AT HAUS DER MUSIK
On occasion of the conductor’s and composer’s 150th birthday anniversary.
Richard Strauss’ operas, such as “Salome”, “Elektra” and “Der Rosenkavalier”, as well as his tone poems “Don Juan”, “Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks” and “Also sprach Zarathustra” form part of the standard repertoire of many opera houses and concert halls. Between 1906 and 1944 Richard Strauss closely collaborated with the Vienna Philharmonic and conducted the orchestra on numerous occasions.
