A richer look into Richard Strauss and the composer's "Also sprach Zarathustra", his tone poem based on the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche's mystical meditation of the same name. The piece opens with a dramatic fanfare (widely known from its use by Stanley Kubrick in the sound track of 2001: A Space Odyssey), perhaps the most famous "sunrise" in music. Video by Anthony Princiotti.
