Ariadne Auf Naxos in Full Score

Front Cover
Courier Corporation, 1916 - Music - 299 pages
0 Reviews
One of the composer's most highly regarded operas, with a libretto by Hugo von Hoffmansthal that artfully intermingles backstage comedy, the lofty emotions of Greek mythology and the merry pranks of a troupe of commedia dell’arte players. Strauss endowed these antic proceedings with a luminous score that combines music of great satiric wit with breathtaking flights of lyricism. Reprinted from the definitive full-score edition published by Adolph Furstner following the opera's 1916 premiere at the Vienna State Opera.
