Strauss Ein Heldenleben – Violin I Part
Edited by Steven Staryk
Title: Ein Heldenleben
Composer: Richard Strauss
Edited By: Steven Staryk
The first violin part for Strauss' Ein Heldenleben, Op. 40 has been edited by Steven Staryk, renowned musician who has held the concertmaster position with some of the top orchestras in the world, including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at the age of 24 (the youngest ever), and earned the title "king of concertmasters" from The Strad magazine. Staryk's bowings, fingerings and other editorial markings have been added throughout the score.
Ein Heldenleben is a tone poem by Richard Strauss, his sixth composition in this genre, completed in 1898. Greater in scale and demand than any of his previous tone poems, Ein Heldenleben runs at about fifty minutes and is through-composed – performed without breaks – with the exception of a dramatic grand pause at the end of the first movement. It is generally agreed upon that this work is autobiographical in tone, as it contains over thirty quotations from Strauss' earlier works.
