The first of these is the tone poem Ein Heldenleben (A Hero’s Life) which was premiered in 1899 by this very same orchestra under the direction of the composer. The CD is supplemented by the less frequently performed tone poem Macbeth. The 150th birthday of Richard Strauss will be celebrated next year.
