Richard Strauss was a colossal melodic, a brilliant Orchestrator, and a great Narrator. On this CD you will get to know all the creative periods. You listen to well-known songs such as “Allerseelen”, and later Brentano songs such as „Säus’le liebe Myrthe” and Strauss’ last great work at all, the „Vier letzte Lieder“, for high voice and Orchestra here in a piano version arranged by the pianist Eric Schneider.
