Summary

As difficult as it may appear to define the beginning of a characteristic Spätwerk in the case of Strauss, the composer himself has made it easy for us to delineate the last phase of his creativity. The works in question are a group of compositions all finished, albeit not begun, after the completion of his opera Capriccio:

Concerto for Horn and Orchestra No. 2 in E♭, TrV 283

Completion: Vienna, November 28, 1942

Sonatina No. 1 in F for 16 Wind Instruments, “From the Workshop of an Invalid,” TrV 288
