Serenade for 13 Winds in E-flat major
Serenade for Strings in E major
Celebrate springtime with two sunny serenades here with the MPYO and Naohisa Furusawa. Together with Tchaikovsky’s opus, Dvořák’s early String Serenade is the most popular serenade in the Romantic string orchestral repertoire. Its easy-going nature and usage of vigorous Czech folk dance rhythms is irresistible. Inspired by his father’s horn playing, Richard Strauss was only a prodigious 17 years old when he composed his Serenade for Winds. Hear our very own youthful MPYO make beautiful springtime music.
