For Richard Strauss, writing poetry in tones was a central artistic credo. What Beethoven, Berlioz and Liszt had begun was perfected in the Munich-born composer's great tone poems: "Don Juan", "Till Eulenspiegel", "Thus Spake Zarathustra", and his final work of symphonic programme music "An Alpine Symphony", completed in 1915. In this work, which is a summit in the musical depiction of nature in its own right, Strauss sends the listener on a tour through the mountains and has him experience pastures, waterfalls, undergrowth, glaciers, the elation of reaching the summit, and also a thunderstorm. Beneath the surface, however, the "Alpine Symphony", which Strauss originally entitled "The Antichrist", has several echoes of Beethoven and Wagner and - especially in the sections entitled Night, Vision and Elegy - leads us subtly into philosophically charged soundscapes intended to convey "moral purification through one's own strength" and also "worship of eternal and magnificent nature."
