Re: Richard Strauss Apline Symphony
Des merely confirms what I said re Sugar Water - as quoted in the Heyworth Conversations. Toscanini had a similar response. I don't see that coming after 'Salome and 'Elektra' justifies, or has anything to do with Klemperer's claim? And what is he trying say in his last paragraph? Klemperer's 'silence' could have many meanings? Heyworth, in his well researched bio of Klemperer, also tells us that Klemperer, disgusted with Strauss's lack of any criticism of Hitler's genocidal regime, tried to get his works banned. Nothing came of it, but it shows the extent of Klemperer's negative feelings towards Strauss. Probably inflected by the composers nasty anti-Semitic remark in the presence of Klemperer (page 420 of Heyworth's Conversations with Klemperer).
