Music For
Harry 2

Richard Strauss:Serenade for Wind Ensemble in E flat op.7 (R Strauss).
Dvorak Serenade for Wind in D Minor op.44 B77
CONDUCTOR: Michael Harris
ARTISTS: Birmingham Conservatoire Wind Ensemble £15 Crotchet

This CD is the latest in a series of innovative musical projects called 'Music for Harry' which raise money to provide direct funding for research into Cystic Fibrosis at the Royal Brompton Hospital London. All monies raised by Crotchet on the sale of this CD will be forwarded to the Royal Brompton.

The fund is support by the actress Jenny Agutter. They started in 1998, since when almost £60,000 has been raised. The research which the project has helped to fund has been very successful. It is the first
study anywhere in the world to show the beneficial effects of macrolide antibiotics in treating children suffering from CF who had not responded to other forms of treatment, work which is being developed further.
