Reference Recordings is proud to present a first album with the Carnegie Mellon Wind Ensemble, conducted by 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. 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”.
