Notes & Reviews:
A completely new way of experiencing and enjoying the great works of music from the Baroque to the modern period - thanks to a new series of audio-visual concert guides, Masterpieces of Classical Music. Each release includes extensive documentation and a complete performance of the work or works in question. In his Alpine Symphony, Richard Strauss pulled out all the stops in creating a musical landscape full of surprising tone-paintings. The well-known music journalist Habakuk Traber shows how the great tone painter and unrivalled master in the art of instrumentation produced a fascinating synthesis of symphony and programme music.Notes & Reviews:
