One of the most fascinating paradoxes of Richard Strauss is that he was blessed with a musical language of immense popular appeal; yet one would need to look hard to find a composer who was less motivated byfeelings of kinship towards his fellow man. Today Donald Macleod investigates how these characteristics manifest themselves in Strauss's music.
