Classical Music Library Free Download of the Week: Strauss’ Don Juan, Op. 20

Richard Strauss’ masterpiece Don Juan, based on Nikolaus Lenau’s fragmentary verse-drama, was composed in 1888 and first performed on 11 November 1889 with Strauss conducting. Marking the emergence of Strauss the composer, this orchestral piece of virtuosity has found a permanent and popular position in the repertoire.

The work established Strauss’ international reputation and its immediate appeal is still infectious today. The dynamic hero is wonderfully conjured by the fireworks of the orchestral writing, and portraits of three of his ladies form the basis for three contrasting episodes.

This recording is performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra; Sir Charles Mackerras, conductor.
