Description: These sunny works by Gouvy date from 1879 and 1888 and are very much in the spirit, if not style, of the Viennese Classical serenade. A 32-page booklet with 23 color photos of the grounds and the musicians in the grounds of the Castle and baroque gardens of Lichtenwalde (in Saxony, just outside Chemnitz) make for a rather extravagant bonus - although the notes are in German only.
