Eine Alpensinfonie' by Richard Strauss is a typical example of programme music. In his last major work for orchestra Strauss precisely describes all the stages of a walk in the mountains in clearly defined sections. These begin with departure at daybreak, the climb up through the trees and across flowery meadows and glaciers to the summit, followed by the descent through a storm and finally sunset. Strauss successfully brought together the various strands of music history, combining the musical absolutes of Beethoven and Brahms with the programmatic concepts of Liszt and Wagner. This is what best reveals the composer's ingenuity and virtuosity.
