Notes & Reviews:

"Richard Strauss's early wind music sounds like Brahms, but it is highly enjoyable - top-quality Brahms, if you will... Clark McAlister's completion of an abandoned Serende by Max Reger continues the charm of the program, and Graham Sheen's transcription of one of Brahms's great works for piano concludes a highly satisfactory, thematically integreated program... music, performance, and sound are all delightful. If we gave out letter grades, this disc would rate a straight A." -Fanfare
