Die Frau ohne Schatten (The Woman without a Shadow), is considered by many to be Richard Strauss' finest score. Its libretto, by Hugo von Hofmannsthal, is a fairy-tale allegory that follows the fates of two childless couples, meant to evoke the world of Mozart's The Magic Flute. Strauss brought it to vibrant life with a spectacular, lush orchestral score that stands out as the most fantastically intricate work in the long career of this master orchestrator. An absolute must for students and admirers of Strauss' craft, this volume provides the complete full score of the opera.
Unabridged republication of the original edition by Adolph Fürstner, Berlin, 1919. [9 3/8 x 12 1/4, 672 pp.].
