Michael O'Mara Books, London - ISBN:0948397519, ©1988. Hardcover, 6" x 9", with dust jacket. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, barcode etc. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOOD unclipped dust jacket. Fawn cloth-bound boards, with gold type to spine, 23 b&w photographs, short bibliography, and index. As a composer of music for the theatre, Richard Strauss was a genius, and - unlike Verdi, Wagner, and Mozart - he is always called Richard Strauss to distinguish him from the Viennese Strauss family of waltz fame. Richard showed early musical promise and composed his first piece for full symphony orchestra at the age of twelve; he is today considered the last in the line of the German romantic composers. This book concentrates on the operatic works of Strauss, describing his life at the time of each opera's composition, discusses the libretto and librettist, and outlines the story of the opera, and concludes with a complete musical analysis.
