A recording based on a family’s hidden collection of letters from the great Romantic masters featured on the disc. New transcriptions of music by Richard Strauss, Schumann, Brahms, Mendelssohn, Rubinstein and Franz sit alongside a superb new recording of Strauss’ masterpiece, Festmusik der Stadt Wien. Directed by John Wilson and joined by the acclaimed brass ensemble, Septura, this recording is for both lovers of the grandeur of the large ensemble and the intimacy of the brass quintet alike.
