Burleske for Piano and Orchestra in Full Score
One of the greatest orchestral and opera composers of the late-nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Richard Strauss created brilliant tone poems such as Don Juan and Till Eulenspiegels Lustige Streiche that rank among the most performed and studied works in the repertoire. His popular early work, Burleske for Piano and Orchestra fully displays the remarkable orchestral color and brilliant orchestration so characteristic of his later works. The German term Burleske translates as 'farce', and it constitutes an apt description of this work which abounds in sly humor that lurks beneath an elegant veneer and remains a favorite with performers as well as audiences.
