Richard Strauss was just 25 when he wrote Death and Transfiguration, a tone poem depicting the death of an artist. A man lies dying, with thoughts of his life passing through his head, his childhood innocence, the struggles of his manhood, achieving his worldly goals, and at the end, receiving the longed-for transfiguration "from the infinite reaches of heaven."
