About

These enchanting works by Richard Strauss are performed by Stefan Veselka, whose complete recordings of Dvorák’s piano music on Naxos were a great success: “Veselka’s massive, full-bodied chord playing and emphatically sculpted filigree can be likened to orchestrating at the piano”. Classics Today
 
Although best known as a composer of symphonic poems, operas and songs, Richard Strauss was also a proficient pianist from an early age. Composed during his final years at school, and at university, the piano works included on this recording are written mainly in a conservative harmonic style, reflecting the obvious influences of Mendelssohn, Brahms and Schumann.
 
That Strauss was to become a significant composer of Lieder with piano accompaniment can be heard in the lush harmonies of Traumerei (Ręverie) in Moods and Fancies.
