Synopsis

The deep and lasting love of a famous German musician for ItalyRichard Strauss (1864-1949) was the most famous and successful German composer of the first half of the 20th century. His operas were at first considered scandalous, but since have been considered and admirable summation of European culture. His entire existence, his art and private life, were constantly and profoundly influenced by Italy. This book, which is sponsored by the Teatro Regio of Turin, describes this extraordinary relationship through a large number of mostly unpublished documents and objects.
