Strauss: Ein Heldenleben

Vienna Symphony, Gautier Capuçon, Philippe Jordan
{{ message.content }}

In Ein Heldenleben (A Hero's Life), Richard Strauss offers up a self-portrait. Is it meant ironically? One thing is certain: this music is extremely entertaining. It was with tone poems like Ein Heldenleben that the young Strauss established his reputation as one of the most brilliant voices in modern German music.
