Format: Audio CD
Richard Strauss (1864-1949) had an especially close relationship with four young conductors.

Fritz Reiner and George Szell were just beginning their careers when they encountered the World's Foremost Authority on the music of Richard Strauss.
26 Year-old Reiner joined the Dresden Court Opera in 1914.
The following year, 18 Year-old Szell was hired by the Berlin Court Opera.
Their connection with Strauss was not as close as Mahler's with Walter and Klemperer, but both conductors were part of Strauss's inner circle.
This was largely a matter of circumstance:
World War I was raging; travel in Germany was restricted.
To be blunt, they were stuck with each other's company for the duration.
- Strauss and Reiner collaborated in preparing the first performance of "Die Frau Ohne Schatten".
The composer conducted the premiere in Vienna, Reiner the second performance in Dresden (both 1919).

Reiner left Dresden in 1922 to become Music Director of the Cincinnati Symphony.
Ten years later, after Hitler came to power, Szell left Germany, eventually settling in Cleveland. *
Both remained loyal to Richard Strauss in the New World.
In the composer's life, they were replaced by Clemens Krauss and Karl Bohm, more established conductors who attached themselves to the Old Man's orbit: Krauss conducts Strauss - and - Richard Strauss: Tone Poems

This box: Fritz Reiner was Music Director of the Pittsburgh Symphony from 1938-1948, and of the Chicago Symphony, 1953-1963.

New to Strauss then this is a reasonably priced starter to explore this complex composer.
A fan like me finds his tempi and interpretations interesting if not always quite fully satisfying but always commanding attention.
I would not wish this to be the only Strauss in my collection and indeed it is not but it deserves a place,my only regret is the absence of some opera.

Excellently presented box set with good sleeve notes. But didn't realise that some of the cds are actually the same pieces just recorded in different years. So not as much repertoire covered as I hoped. Hence minus one star. Nevertheless a good box set to have.
