Summary
"Richard Strauss's Orchestral Music and the German Intellectual Tradition breaks new ground in Straussian studies. Charles Youmans provides an investigation of Strauss's private intellectual life and its impact on the brilliant music he created during the formation of his worldview. The composer's works have traditionally been viewed as a product of High German Romanticism, yet Youmans demonstrates that Strauss's entire body of orchestral music can be read as a history of his struggle with specific intellectual-historical concerns."--Jacket
