Strauss' Vier Letzte Lieder - Chicago Symphony Orchestra

“Music is life, and, like life, inextinguishable” wrote Danish composer Carl Nielsen of his Fourth Symphony, written during the early years of World War I. His life-affirming composition is preceded by Strauss’ poignant Four Last Songs, which has been called “the most beautifully delivered farewell in all of music.”
