The Sydney Youth Orchestra


STRAUSS Four Last Songs

STRAUSS Excerpts from Der Rosenkavalier

Richard Strauss. He’s the firebrand composer who revolutionised the technical and expressive possibilities of the orchestra before the end of the 19th century in his tone-poems.

Enamoured with the female voice, Der Rosenkavalier is famed for the beautiful music of the three female protagonists, leaving early-20th-century audiences in awe of the exquisite duet and trios within the opera. And at the end of his life, his beloved Germany in ruins after the second world war, he wrote some of the most devastatingly moving music ever composed, most especially the Four Last Songs.
