Strauss (R): Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche & Ein Heldenleben

The Philharmonia Orchestra is widely recognized as the UK’s finest orchestra with an impressive recording legacy. Christoph von Dohnányi has been Principal Conductor for the past 11 years and has recently been made Honorary Conductor for Life.

Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche is considered to be one of Strauss’s most witty, entertaining and successful tone poems whereas Ein Heldenleben heralds the composer’s more mature period in this genre, and proved controversial at its premiere for its highly autobiographical nature.
