RICHARD STRAUSS AND HIS HEROINES

 

A film by Thomas von Steinaecker

featuring:
Brigitte Fassbaender
Renée Fleming
Gwyneth Jones
Christa Ludwig
Christian Strauss
Rufus Wainwright

and others

The film Richard Strauss and his Heroines explores Strauss’ relationship to women. The primary focus lies on his attachment to Pauline, his wife of more than 55 years. Strauss experienced the most varied of epochs in German history, from the Empire to Nazi dictatorship and the post-war period. How did the image of women change in this time and what influence did it have on Strauss’ work? And above all: how did Strauss achieve to express the finest feminine feelings in his music? Richard Strauss and his Heroines is the first filmed documentation about the unforgettable heroines created by Strauss and how they affected his life and his marriage.

Bonus:
- Wilhelm Furtwängler conducts Till Eulenspiegel and an excerpt from Ein Leben für die Musik (A life for music)
