Richard Strauss: Three Tone Poems – Cleveland Orchestra, Franz Welser-Möst

This fourth release for the Cleveland Orchestra’s own label again showcases the unparalleled artistry, refined polish, and emotional power of this ensemble under the direction of Franz Welser-Möst. The album features three of Richard Strauss’ early tone poems (Macbeth, Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks, and Don Juan), providing a tantalizing window into Welser-Möst’s reputation as a renowned conductor of Strauss’ music.

Richard Strauss: The Happy Workshop, Serenade – Carnegie Mellon Wind Ensemble

The Carnegie Mellon Wind Ensemble traces its roots to the Carnegie Tech Kiltie Band, founded in 1908. Over the years, the Kiltie Band grew and enjoyed a long and distinguished history as a concert band. Today, single players perform each instrumental part, emulating an orchestral wind section. This style of playing in a large ensemble allows for the tonal colors found in a symphony orchestra. Unusual and underperformed repertoire has long been a hallmark of the ensemble’s programming. This album exemplifies that, with the pairing of Richard Strauss’s 1945 Symphony for Winds in E-flat Major (The Happy Workshop) and his 1881 Serenade.
