More Info:

Reference Recordings is proud to present our first album with the CARNEGIE MELLON WIND ENSEMBLE, conducted and produced by GRAMMYr-winner GEORGE VOSBURGH. Unusual and underperformed repertoire has long been a hallmark of this ensemble's programming. This album exemplifies that, with the pairing of Strauss' 1945 Symphony for Winds in E-flat Major (The Happy Workshop) and his 1881 Serenade for Winds in E-flat Major, Op. 7. Notes writer Amanda Vosburgh states: "Taken together, the Serenade Op. 7 and the "Happy Workshop" form the bookends to a long and diverse body of work, marked by innovative chromaticism and complexity, but tethered at either end to the classical tradition."
