Richard Strauss's lifetime embraced premieres by both Wagner and Boulez. Where did the composer and his remarkable works sit in relation to the greats of the past and the composers of future? Gramophone Editor-in-Chief James Jolly and critic and Strauss specialist Hugo Shirley discuss the composer's life and music, with excerpts from Decca and DG. The latest in our series of Gramophone Milestones Podcasts, produced in association with EFG International, the private bank for classical music.
