Allerseelen

Richard Strauss/arr. Albert O. Davis

 

Allerseelen was written by Strauss as part of a collection of eight lieder in 1885 when he was just 21 years old. Allerseelen means “All Souls (Day)” in English. Initially intended to be performed by soprano voice and piano, Allerseelen exhibits powerful emotions and intense Romanticism.

“Richard Strauss (1864–1949) was a leading German composer of the late Romantic and early modern eras. He is known for his operas, lieder, tone poems, and other instrumental works. Born in Munich to a professional horn player and his wife, he studied music from an early age. He bridged the divide between the Romantic and Contemporary periods of music history.
