    Default Till Eulenspiegel

    So I just recently heard Till Elenspiegel and I fell in love with it. Are there any other good tone poems by Richard Strauss that I may enjoy? Also any other tone poems written in kind of the same post romantic era? Thanks

    Maybe Also Sprach Zarathustra (also by Strauss). Also, to get many other recommendations, you may want to check out "Also Sprach Zarathustra (also by Strauss). Also, to get many other recommendations, you may want to check out this thread: Symphonic (Tone) Poems Recommendations
    I believe it's still kicking. :-)

    Sibelius wrote a fair few, the most famous being Finlandia.
    When all the paint has been dried, when all the stone has been carved, music shall remain, and we shall work with what remains.

    Don Juan by R. Strauss
    I think it is his best.

    Also Don Quixote By R. Strauss...even more twisted than Till

    Love Til Eulenspiegal.

    But, why in the hell does no one ever mention his true greatest, Death and Transfiguration?

    I think the "major" Strauss tone poems all have been listed: Don Juan, Zarathustra, Death and Transfiguration, Don Quixote. You can also add Ein Heldenleben and the Metamorphosen for strings.

    The man who coined the term "tone poem" is Franz Liszt, and he has about a dozen to his credit, most notably Les Preludes.
