this is wonderful-wonderful disk and yes, any Richard Strauss compositions are essentially the tone poems. Pretty much whatever Clemens Krauss contacted by Richard Strauss should be snatched as he had a great knowledge and understanding what to do with Strauss.
The Testament has a magnificent transfer of Krauss’s Strauss that I highly recommend to anyone. All the best Krauss’s recordings of Strauss were with Vienna Philharmonic: Le Bourgeois , Ein Heldenleben, Dance of the Seven Veils, Don Quixote, Till Eulenspiegels, Aus Italien and of his Sinfonia Domestica…
Taking about Richard Strauss: I sincerely feel that his operas are highly and very unfortunately underappreciated. I am spinning now “Der Rosenkavalier” by Karajan/ Philharmonia (1957) with Schwarzcopf and Christa Ludwig…. what a marvelous work!!!
