Richard Strauss was a German composer born in Munich in 1864. He was taught music by his father and composed from the age of six until his death in 1949. Strauss had a fairly comfortable life and experienced a rare burst of creativity in his last decade. Some of his later pieces match or surpass his early works. Famous pieces include Don Juan (1888) and Also sprach Zarathustra (1896).
