A counterpart to the Aldeburgh Strings course, whose recording of Britten's Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings launched this partnership in 2016, Aldeburgh Winds offered an opportunity for exceptional wind and brass players to work intensively alongside leading international professionals.

Richard Strauss poured out some of his most heartfelt inspiration in Metamorphosen, a 25-minute string masterpiece written as an elegy in the wake of Germany's destruction in the Second World War.

In complete contrast the Serenade radiates Mozartian bonhomie combined with Strauss's exquisite chamber scoring which provides a tantalising glimpse of the composer to come.

The Symphony for Wind Instruments ('Fröhliche Werkstatt') adds a third clarinet, basset horn and bass clarinet to the Serenade's line-up and is very important work in the wind ensemble repertory.
