Waltz from Der Rosenkavalier Strauss-Richard Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
Richard Strauss is not related to Johann Strauss, the Waltz King, though they both bear the same surname. And the musical style of Richard Strauss generally bears no resemblance to that of the popular Viennese composer.  However, the  musical comedy Der Rosenkavalier The Cavalier of the Rose  is a bit of an exception. It is full of melodious and boisterous music, including many waltzes.  Richard Strauss uses very lush and rich harmonies, and his key changes and harmonic structures are more advanced than those of Johann Strauss. 

Der Rosenkavalier is about the changing romantic attachments of four characters. The Marschallin is a 32 year old woman worried her charms will soon fade.  Octavian is a young man of 17.  Baron Ochs is the Marschallin's foolish cousin. Sophie is the pretty 15 year old daughter of a wealthy merchant, and Baron Ochs is engaged to her.

 This waltz is presented here as a piano duet, but the lush orchestration seems to shine through, even though it is merely played on one piano, four hands!
