Richard Strauss, dramatist. Complete melodramas


Meticulously staged, this performance of Richard Strauss’s two melodramas emphasises the strong dramaturgical content of these works, which came about as a result of his collaboration with the actor Ernst von Possart. Das Schloss am Meere (The Castle by the Sea) is a Gothic melodrama, while Enoch Arden is a large-scale work with exalted sentimentality. In both, Strauss uses resources such as the leitmotif, which entails associating a musical motive with a particular character, object, idea or feeling.
