Two of Strauss's great orchestral tone poems are on this CD, conducted by the Philharmonia's Honorary Conductor for Life, Christoph von Dohnányi. The eponymous hero of Till Eulenspiegel hijinks and practical jokes are portrayed by Strauss, whereas the hero of Ein Heldenleben is generally held to be Strauss himself, confident and ebullient.
