Strauss: Ein Heldenleben, Macbeth / Gerhard Markson, et al

Album Summary

>Strauss, Richard : Macbeth (symphonic poem), Op. 23
>Strauss, Richard : Ein Heldenleben, Op. 40
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Perhaps, this score is the ultimate test of orchestral virtuosity. From the sensational central battle scene, to the tender passion of love music, Richard Strauss unfolds his story of a hero in a riot of tonal colors. More muted, but coldly dramatic, Macbeth relates the murderous story of Shakespeare's famous paly.
