Notes & Reviews:

Although best known as a composer of symphonic poems, operas and songs, Richard Strauss was also a proficient pianist from an early age. Composed during his final years at school, the piano works included on this recording are written mainly in a conservative harmonic style, reflecting the obvious influences of Mendelssohn, Brahms and Schumann. That Strauss was to become a significant composer of 'Lieder' with piano accompaniment can be heard in the lush harmonies of 'Traumerei' (Reverie) in 'Moods and Fancies.'
