Biographical History

Richard Strauss (1864-1949) was a German composer.

Richard Strauss was born June 11, 1864 in Munich, Germany. He was a renowned German composer of the late romantic era and early modern era. As a child, Strauss received his musical education from his father, Franz Strauss and wrote his first piece of music age six. Later in his youth, Strauss received private instruction in music theory and orchestration from the assistant conductor of the Munich Court Orchestra. In 1882, he attended Munich University where he studied Philosophy and Art History, however, he left his studies after approximately a year and later gained a position as assistant conductor to Hans von Bulow. Throughout his lifetime, Strauss delved fully into the musical world experimenting through tone poems, opera, solo work, chamber work and various other aspects. He married Pauline de Ahna on September 10, 1894. Richard Strauss wrote his last work in 1948 and died on September 8, 1949 in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany.
