The Cambridge Companion to Richard Strauss
edited by Charles Youmans

This book of essays on Richard Strauss is extremely well-written and well put together. There is not a lot of biographical information, but that is easily obtained elsewhere. What this volume does have is a series of really insightful examinations of Strauss' career and music. I especially liked the perspectives on Strauss' early works and on thorny topics like the eroticism in his music and his relationships with the Third Reich and the business side of music.
