Richard Strauss

Richard Georg Strauss (Monaco di Baviera, 11 giugno 1864 – Garmisch-Partenkirchen, 8 settembre 1949) è stato un compositore e direttore d'orchestra tedesco del periodo tardo-romantico.

Noto soprattutto per i suoi poemi sinfonici e le sue opere liriche, Richard Strauss non è da confondere con gli Strauss viennesi, famosi compositori di musica da ballo, con i quali non aveva parentela.

Pauline Maria de Ahna (also known as Pauline Strauss (4 February 1863 – 13 May 1950) was a German operatic soprano and the wife of composer Richard Strauss. Her singing career was closely tied to her husband's career as a conductor and composer. From 1890-1894 she was committed to the Staatskapelle Weimar and from 1894-1897 she was committed to the Bavarian State Opera, during which times her husband was the principal conductor of those theaters. She also sang under her husband's baton at the Bayreuth Festival and in the world premiere of his first opera Guntram. Other houses at which performed included the Berlin State Opera, La Monnaie, and the Liceu. Her repertoire included leading roles in the operas of Beethoven, Humperdinck, Mozart, von Weber, and Wagner. After she gave birth to their son, Franz Strauss in 1897, she retired from the opera stage. She thereafter continued to periodically perform in concerts of her husband's music, particularly lieder. Strauss credited her as his muse for many of his compositions, including the title role in Salome, the Countess Madeleine in Capriccio, and the Four Last Songs among others.
