Strauss: Till Eulenspiegel Lustige Streiche & Ein Heldenleben
SIGCD148 | February 2009 release
Two of Strauss’s great orchestral tone poems are on this CD, conducted by the Philharmonia’s Honorary Conductor for Life, Christoph von Dohnányi.
The hijinks and practical jokes of the eponymous hero of Till Eulenspiegel are portrayed by Strauss, whereas the hero of Ein Heldenleben is generally held to be Strauss himself, confident and ebullient.
