Ein Heldenleben (A Hero's Life), Op. 40 is a tone poem by Richard Strauss. The work was completed in 1898. It was his eighth work in the genre, and exceeded any of its predecessors in its orchestral demands. Generally agreed to be autobiographical in nature, despite contradictory statements on the matter by the composer, the work contains more than thirty quotations from Strauss's earlier works, including Also sprach Zarathustra, Till Eulenspiegel, Don Quixote, and Death and Transfiguration.

The Concertgebouw Recordings. It seems as though Mengelberg had become more thoughtful and reflective in this latter performance, eschewing virtuosity in favor of lyricism and poetry. The final section is especially moving in the 1941 performance, and the playing of the Concertgebouw is more subtle and refined than that of the Philharmonic. Personally, I wouldn't want to be without either of the Mengelberg recordings. Tod und Verklaerung" is a completely different story. I first heard this performance over FM back in 1961, from terribly worn 78's.
