   schema:description "“Richard Strauss ranks among history’s most successful composers. For sixty of his eighty-five years he was Germany’s most popular living composer and as a result enjoyed great wealth and adulation. His mastery of the tone poem, combined with such operatic achievements as Der Rosenkavalier, Salome and Elektra, form a major and enduring musical legacy. Matthew Boyden’s biography of this musical genius explores how and why Strauss took the controversial step of cooperating with the Nazis. Through an examination of the role of Strauss’s domineering father and other mentors, such as Hans von Bülow, Alexander Ritter and Cosima Wagner, his education and the culture that he absorbed, Boyden portrays a gifted but difficult person living in a horrific time. In the view of the author, Strauss’s historical pessimism, combined with an all-consuming ambition, led him to ignore any responsibility for his community and actively support Hitler’s government. This myth-shattering biography confronts the contradictions between Strauss’s prodigious achievements and his character.”--Jacket."@en ;
