Strauss built his beautiful home in Garmsich, located in the Bavarian Alps. According to the story, when the Kaiser of Germany heard a performance of Salome, he is reputed to have said “I am sorry Strauss composed this Salome. It will do him a great deal of harm”.  Strauss, on hearing this, commented that the harm enabled him to build the villa at Garmisch.  I have visited it many times and it is a beautiful place!
