Strauss: Don Juan

The legendary seducer!

Programme music, purely instrumental music descriptive of or inspired by a literary text - was a notion both popular and controversial in the late 19th century. In Don Juan, Richard Strauss presented his take on themes of love and conquest. Don Juan embraces two principal themes, the grand opening flourish (Don Juan's principal theme), and several ''love-themes''.
