Abstract The Alpine Symphony is one of Strauss' largest non-operatic conceptions, and the composer considered it his best work in terms of its orchestration. Despite its title, it is not a symphony in the generally accepted sense of the word. It is a 'tone poem', a musical form which Strauss specialized in for 20 years of his life. German author and Strauss specialist Habakuk Traber explains the work's concept as an allegory for human life with its joy, fear and glory; beginning and ending in darkness. Giuseppe Sinopoli conducts the Sächsische Staatskapelle.
