At long last, just before the seventieth anniversary of his death in 1949, Richard Strauss gets his critical edition. The massive and, thus far, wellexecuted Kritische Ausgabe will prove to be a milestone in the history of Strauss research. We are just at the beginning, for the first two volumes have been issued: the composer's first tone poem, Macbeth (1888-91), and the early lieder, opp. 10-29. This colossal undertaking involves a consortium of several publishers--Boosey & Hawkes, Peters, Schott, and the Richard Strauss Verlag--and is sponsored by the University of Munich, the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities, and the Richard Strauss Institute.

The project committee consists of its chair, Hartmut Schick (professor of musicology at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat), Bernd Edelman (lecturer in music at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat), Claudia Heine (research associate of the Richard Strauss Edition), Wolfgang Horn (professor of musicology at the University of Regensburg), Jurgen May (former assistant director of the RSI), and Giselher Schubert (a founding editor of the Hindemith Edition and former head of the Hindemith Institute). The board of advisors is made up of Ulrich Conrad (professor of musicology at the University of Wurzburg), Hendrik Birus (vice president of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities), Andreas Krause (Schott), Bernhard Pfau (Furstner), Helmut Pfotenhauer (professor of literature at the University of Wurzburg), Walter Werbeck (professor emeritus of musicology at the University of Greifswald), and Christian Wolf (former director of the Richard Strauss Institute).

Richard Strauss (1864-1949) was the most prolific German composer of his time, having composed a dozen symphonic works, fifteen operas, over two hundred songs, numerous pieces for woodwinds, concert overtures, concertos, ballet music, chamber music, and even film music. The Kritische Ausgabe organizes this oeuvre into six series:
