David Huckvale visits the sumptuous villa in Garmisch, which Richard Strauss built with the proceeds of his scandalous opera `Salome' and used as a refuge from the world for four decades until his death there in 1949. Huckvale meets the composer's grandson, Dr CHRISTIAN Strauss, and his wife Susanne, and also plays Strauss's piano.
