Product Description:

The life and works of composer Richard Strauss are outlined in this informative documentary. Includes an overview of his key compositions, as well as excerpts performed by the Elysian Ensemble.

Plot Synopsis:

A conductor as well as a composer, Richard Strauss garnered acclaim with such operas as "Feuersnot," "Salome," "Elektra" and his masterpiece, "Der Rosenkavalier." The German artist also created many tone poems, including "Don Quixote" and "Spake Zarathustra."
Viewers of this installment in "The Famous Composers Series" see that Strauss's wishes to leave behind conducting to focus exclusively on composing were dashed after he lost his riches at the age of 50.
