Richard Strauss

Fecha de nacimiento: 11. Junio 1864
Fecha de muerte: 8. Septiembre 1949


Richard Georg Strauss fue un destacado compositor y director de orquesta alemán cuya larga trayectoria abarca desde el romanticismo tardío hasta la primera mitad del siglo XX. Es conocido particularmente por sus óperas, poemas sinfónicos y lieder. Strauss, junto con Gustav Mahler, representa el extraordinario florecimiento tardío del romanticismo germánico después de Richard Wagner, en el cual un desarrollo elaborado y complejo de la orquestación se une a un estilo armónico avanzado. La música de Strauss influyó profundamente en el desarrollo de la música del siglo XX.
