In addition to his better known operas, Ermanno Wolf-Ferrari also wrote a number of sublimely expressive and lyrical orchestral works, devoting the majority of his time in later life to composing instrumental music. The three delightfully melodic, rhythmically buoyant and, at times, elegiac works on the featured recording below represent his complete wind concerto output.
