This year's BBC Proms marks the 150th anniversary of Richard Strauss with his famous operas and other works featured across 13 concerts.

Richard Strauss was a leading post-Romantic German composer - his tone poems in the 1890s marked him as a radical successor to Wagner and Liszt. His musical style, trusting utterly to tonality, combines Wagnerian richness with Mozartian expression in melody; his orchestration demonstrates dramatic instinct and great virtuosity, with chamber-like scoring; and his output includes some of the greatest-ever writing for the female voice.
