‘Love Scene’ from Feuersnot
Can a desire for revenge be the main source of inspiration for writing an opera? Richard Strauss seemed to believe so.
Death and Transfiguration
Strauss felt that audiences could only understand Death and Transfiguration if they knew specifically what it was about.

We don’t know for just what occasion Mozart wrote this concerto. We do know that he found it a rewarding piece for his concerts in Vienna, where he played it twice with his pupil Josephine Auernhammer.
