Mood Music

Ether Game asks: can you name this tune? It’s a hot and spicy bit of German Romanticism…

The story of this legendary seducer has inspired many wonderful works of art, including paintings, a full-scale opera, and this fiendishly difficult orchestral masterpiece. The composer of this work wrote a famous collection of orchestral works that not only tell a story through music, but also delve deep into the emotional core of each story. This composer was also widely admired as a conductor, and conducted the world premieres of many of his own works.
