One of the most often performed of Strauss' musical works, this landmark of modern opera scandalized early 20th-century audiences with its startling dissonance and unconventional harmonics. Today, it is admired for virtuosic invention of musical ideas and the use of instrumental sonorities to characterize both persons and actions. Reprinted directly from the authoritative Furstner edition."
