Richard Georg Strauss was a leading German composer of the late romantic and early modern eras. He is known for his operas, which include Der Rosenkavalier and Salome, his lieder, especially his Four Last Songs and his tone poems

and other orchestral works, such as Death and Transfiguration,Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks, Also sprach Zarathustra, An Alpine Symphony and Metamorphosen. Strauss was also a prominent conductor throughout Germany and Austria.

Strauss, along with Gustav Mahler, represents the late flowering of German Romanticism after Richard Wagner, in which pioneering subtleties of orchestration are combined with an advanced harmonic style.
