This arrangement was conducted by Frank Sinatra and recorded in 1945. Sinatra, a big fan and supporter of Wilder's music, convinced Columbia Records (Sinatra was under contract to Columbia at the time) to record an album of orchestral works with Sinatra conducting. The two men were close personal friends until Wilder's death in 1980 from lung cancer. This piece features an English horn soloist with a string orchestra and percussion.
