Program Notes

Serenade in E♭, Opus 7


Richard Strauss, composer

The full band is not used in this composition, but rather a small wind ensemble consisting of pairs of flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoons, a quartet of horns, and tuba. Strauss was a schoolboy when he composed this piece, yet it is a mature composition with precursors of Til Eulenspeigel. The Serenade impressed noted conductor Hans von Bulow and led to Strauss’ career as a composer and conductor.
