Richard Strauss was a German composer – not to be confused with Johann Strauss, the famous composer of waltzes – representing the late romantic period. He was taught music by his father and composed from the age of six until his death in 1949. Strauss had a fairly comfortable life and experienced a rare burst of creativity in his last decade. Some of his later pieces match or surpass his early works. Famous pieces include the opera “Don Juan” and a tone poem “Thus spoke Zarathustra”.
