I’m a n00b, ok?

November 10, 2008

In my attempt to learn more about the music of Richard Strauss, I picked up a CD from the library. It took me a few minutes, as I sat there listening to “The Blue Danube”, trying to hear what Schoenberg called the “revolutionary” in Strauss’ music, before I consulted Google, and found that there is apparently more than one Strauss. Oh well. I like waltzes too!

    Yes, it is a very nice tune! Very different from the music I was looking for, however. Despite their same last names, Richard Strauss and Johannes Strauss are at opposite ends of the spectrum, it seems.
