Richard Strauss explores the importance of words in opera. The plot of the work involves a countess - a symbol of art - whose affections are divided between two suitors, a poet and a composer. Who should she choose? Decidedly, Strauss attaches particular importance to the intelligibility of the sung text, while not skimping on the musical means, deploying a palette of harmonies and textures incomparable.
