Richard strauss - joseph de pasquale - don quijote op. 35


Strauss drew on earlier sketches for his abandoned ballet Die Insel Kythere and wrote for an outsized orchestra with exotic instrumental colouring including four harps, large and small cymbals, four pairs of castanets , heckelphone , and a contrabass clarinet . [4]

Strauss was born in Parkstein , Bavaria . His father, Johann Urban Strauss, was of unsteady character; his children were illegitimate and he left their upbringing to their mother, Maria Anna Kunigunde Walter. [1] She was a member of a large and musical family, and her brother (Johann) Georg Walter undertook the boy's musical education. Georg taught Strauss to play the clarinet, guitar and a range of brass instruments. At the age of nine, Strauss was taken on as a pupil and player by another uncle, Franz Michael Walter, a military bandmaster. [1] Georg's son Benno Walter was later to become the first violin teacher of Franz's son Richard and dedicatee of some of his works.
