Both as composer and conductor, Richard Strauss was one of the most significant representatives of late- and post-Romantic music. His greatness as an interpreter is documented on this 7-CD set, which brings together his major recordings for Polydor/Deutsche Grammophon. Made between 1921 and 1941, these recordings feature his own orchestral works along with music of Mozart, Beethoven, Gluck, Weber and Wagner.
