Bill FromPA (bill_from_pa) | 19 comments Please add this cover for Strauss Tone Poems (BBC Music Guides), ISBN 0563202750. Book: Cover:

The image is scanned from a copy I own.
Also please note that the binding is paperback and, if possible, add the following description from the back cover:

The tone poems of Richard Strauss are a cornerstone of the orchestral repertoire and occupy a position in his output second only to that of the operas. In this BBC Music Guide Michael Kennedy surveys the development of his mastery of the genre, from Macbeth in the 1880s to such large scale canvasses as the Symphonia Domestica and the Alpine Symphont, composed in the early years of the present century, and including, of course, Don Juan, Tod und Verklärung, Till Eulenspiegel, Also sprach Zarathustra, Don Quixote and Ein Heldenleben.

Michael Kennedy has already written a notable study of Strauss for the Master Musicians series, as well as books on Mahler, Elgar and Vaughan Williams. He is also the author of the BBC Music Guide on Elgar’s orchestral music.
