Richard Strauss' Einerlei

Fleur Barron, mezzo-soprano and Julius Drake, piano

"Einerlei", from Fünf kleine Lieder Op. 69, by Richard Strauss

"I take a book of poems, leaf through it in an unconnected way, and a poem appears for which, often even before I have read it correctly, a musical thought arises". This is how Richard Strauss himself described his process of inspiration to compose Lieder, a genre he cultivated all his life.
