Short Biography of Richard Strauss

 Q:   Ask a Question about Short Biography of Richard Strauss       
Richard Georg Strauss (1864-1949) was a German composer and conductor. He followed the German Romantic tradition but had a strongly personal style, characterized by his bold, colourful orchestration.

He first wrote tone poems such as Don Juan in 1889, Till Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks in 1895, and Also sprach Zarathustra in 1896. He then moved on to opera with Salome in 1905, and Elektra in 1909, both of which have elements of polytonality.

He reverted to a more traditional style with Der Rosenkavalier in 1911.
