STRAUSS, R.: Symphonic Fantasy on Die Frau ohne Schatten / Serenade / Symphonic Fragment from Josephs Legende (Seattle Symphony, Schwarz)

Richard Strauss revived some of his less well-known scores in later years, turning his richly imaginative fairytale opera Die Frau ohne Schatten into an attractively compact orchestral tone-poem. Strauss preserved the storyline and tuneful highlights of both this and his Diaghilev-commissioned ballet Josephs-Legende, which describes a biblical drama in soaring themes and splendid orchestral effects. The charming and lyrical Serenade for Winds, written when Strauss was only 17, drew the composer to the attention of Hans von Bülow, whose support and influence was of importance to Strauss’s early career.
