no longer for sale

"Like many of his contemporaries, the young Richard Strauss was enthralled with Wagner; indeed, a number of his compositions reveal an intent on Strauss' part to re-create the spirit of the older composer's works. However, as evidenced by his adoption of Friedrich Nietzsche's Also sprach Zarathustra as the subject of a tone poem, Strauss' music soon took on a distinct identity. By this time, Nietzsche had become the most vocal and articulate critic of Wagner's philosophy and art. By aligning his artistic vision with that of Nietzsche, Strauss forever removed himself from the camp of "true" Wagnerians." - AMG.
