Richard Strauss—Thus Spoke Zarathustra

Lecture no. 22 from the course: The 30 Greatest Orchestral Works

Richard Strauss—Thus Spoke Zarathustra

Taught by Professor Robert Greenberg | 47 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Music & Fine Art Courses

Strauss’s majestic tone poem is based on the philosophical masterwork of Friedrich Nietzsche. Begin by tracing Strauss’s musical education, his points of connection with Nietzsche, and the philosophical underpinnings of Nietzsche’s work. In Strauss’s musical rendering, grasp the structure of the famous “Nature theme” and follow Strauss’s interpretation of eight “sermons” from Nietzsche’s original, dramatizing the sage Zarathustra’s quest to enlighten and elevate humanity.
