Richard Strauss as a conductor vol.3 (his own works, all rec.1944, CD)

£6.99

Product description

Perhaps because, of his twin-role as a brilliant composer, Richard Strauss enjoyed more fame, as a conductor, than any other, in the 20th century (although just as much adulation, it could be argued, came to the likes of Otto Klemperer, Herbert von Karajan , Sir Thomas Beecham, Georg Solti, even Leopold Stokowski etc., and the Italian Arturo Toscanini, who, incidentally, had several well-reported clashes with the sometimes-awkward Strauss. Toscanini once said to the German, "as a composer, I raise my hat to you. But as a human being, I put on ten hats" ! )

Richard Strauss greatly influenced the new style of orchestral conducting, that proliferated, from the twenties, onward. His sparse gestures, calm baton and alert eyes, that signalled entries precisley, heralded the new school. Even the incredibly individualistic Toscanini did adopt some of Strauss' techniques.

His recordings, as a conductor, have an astounding range of sounds. He achieved scarcely audible pianissimos and built amazing crescendos. His approach was concerned with dynamics but, with the exception of his own works (including on this CD), he was less sensitive to instumental tone. This, however, was one of the secrets of Strauss' exceptional art as an orchestrator, because such a black-and-white playing, sets off the main phrases and brings out the dynamic structure of a work.
