To give renewed life to two of his less well known scores, the fantasy opera Die Frau ohne Schatten and the biblical ballet Josephs-Legende, Richard Strauss created symphonic memoires which preserved both their storylines and musical highlights.
Following the phenomenal success of his 'comedy for music' Der Rosenkavalier, Strauss prepared an orchestral suite based on the florid waltzes of his most famous opera.
The Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra under JoAnn Falletta has recorded several acclaimed discs for Naxos, including a double Grammy?«-winning CD of John Corigliano's Mr Tambourine Man (8559331).
