Description: Look Ma, no strings! The title of this disc is "The Saxon Alternative" which was the name given to the German take on the French oboe band: pairs of horns and bassoons added to pairs of oboes to produce a wider variety of wind color. Some of the pieces here were also later orchestrated for full orchestra by Telemann.
