Strauss’s Also sprach Zarathustra opens with Sunrise, the movement made famous after its inclusion on the soundtrack of Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, but there’s much more to this work. Inspired by Nietzsche’s philosophical novel of the same name, Strauss’s tone poem explores the development of humankind, from the Birth of Reason in that opening Sunrise through to the piece’s enigmatic end – the question of the balance between humanity and the universe is explored, but not resolved.
