Conductors who are also composers tend to excel at revealing how a piece of music goes, so to speak: at conveying the overall structure and narrative sweep of the work. Little flaws in execution are allowed to pass by for the sake of making long phrases come through organically. Strauss was reluctant to take up this project, suggested by Hofmannsthal. The opera is a fairy tale about two childless couples. The Empress, a half-spirit, is married to a mortal, the Emperor, who adores her.
A Second Book of Operas
They live in a wondrous mid-realm between the spirit world and the hardscrabble environs of human life. But the Empress lacks a shadow, which in this tale seems a metaphor for mortality, the idea that all of us, even those without children, leave a shadow in the world. The Empress is enticed by her controlling nurse to descend to the world, where she is brought together with the bitter, childless wife of Barak, a good-hearted, struggling dyer, who longs to have a family.
Strauss had trouble composing the piece, as he complained to Hofmannsthal.
His heart was only half in it, he wrote; his head had to do most of the work. Maybe so, but Strauss the composer and musical dramatist had an impressive head. The score is an ingenious amalgam of fantastical colorings, shimmering harmonies, slashing orchestra blasts and aching melodic lines. The musical language mostly hews to tonality, but a hyper-charged, mercurial tonality.
It must be said that, though in later years Strauss cultivated a public image as a pragmatic musician too immersed in everyday goings-on to pursue high-minded modernism, he badly misread that real world when the Nazis came to power.
