Librettists Recieve Their Due

In an odd case of litero-musical "too-little-too-late," it seems that Hoffmanstaal, the man-behind-the-man of Richard Strauss, is set to finally recieve some fiscal compensation. Odd to happen some hundred or so years after the fact, but no doubt the inheritors of the poet's estate will be thrilled beyond description. Now if only the Shakespeare estate could pursue some cash for Falstaff, or the Ovid estate begin to soak any number of companies.

I joke, but only out of surprise that this was not taken care of long, long ago.
