Richard Georg Strauss è stato un compositore e direttore d'orchestra tedesco del periodo tardoromantico.

Noto soprattutto per i suoi poemi sinfonici e le sue opere liriche, Richard Strauss non è da confondere con gli Strauss viennesi, famosi compositori di musica da ballo, con i quali non aveva parentela.
