KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a compilation of the correspondence between Richard Strauss and Hugo von Hofmannsthal, his collaborator and librettist. This volume has been edited by his son, Dr. Franz Strauss, to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the great composer. The letters deal almost exclusively with Strauss' work, but here and there one gets a glimpse of the man himself. For a specialized audience, but of interest to that one.
