You might call Strauss’s last tone poem “A Day in the Life of the King of Sound Painting” — charming, humorous portraits of family life. Scored for an enormous orchestra, Symphonia domestica depicts bath-time for baby, voluptuous conjugal love, even a family squabble and reconciliation, and more. Jörg Widmann’s Babylon Suite suggests an out-of-joint world — perhaps not unlike ours today.
