Richard Strauss's Death and Transfiguration Score
Tod und Verklärung marks a turning point in Strauss’s corpus of tone poems: Even before the November 1889 premiere of his previous work Don Juan, Strauss had finished his third work in this genre.

He leads the listener with great clarity through the dying hour of a person who had pursued the highest ideals. The present Urtext edition evaluates for the first time all the corrections that Strauss made in the galley proofs of the work’s full score and parts, correlating these to the music text.
