Richard Strauss, Between Munich and Vienna

This series took place onFrom to
Richard Strauss is one of those unusual composers in music history who was capable of mastering all the genres of his time: from opera to  ballet, orchestral to piano music, songs to the choral repertory. Known for his very controversial political activity during Nazism, his influential aesthetic shadow was primarily cast in Munich and Vienna and ultimately eclipsed some of his contemporaries. This series presents an overview of his chamber music together with works by some of his colleagues active in the same cities, particularly those still underestimated in concert halls such as Korngold, Kreneck, Zemlinsky, Pfitzner and Schreker.
