A Musical LifeBook - 2011
"This important book is the first to consider Strauss's career as a conductor and place it in relation to his life as a composer. With unique access to extensive materials in the Strauss family's private archives, Raymond Holden corrects misconceptions about Strauss and discusses the musician's understanding of composing and conducting as intertwined processes. Holden throws new light on Strauss's relationships, on his disputed role during the Third Reich, and particularly on his performance practices and principles"--P.  of dust jacket.
