Printed Music: Serenade (1993, revised 1996) by Henry Doktorski for two wind instruments (or free-bass accordion) and harp (or piano). Duration: 3 minutes, 30 seconds. Professionally typeset and printed. Score = 7 pages and measures 8.5 x 11 inches. Parts included. Recorded on Boston Records by Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra members Gretchen Van Hoesen (flute) and James Gorton (oboe), and performed in concert with Van Hoesen, Gorton, and Robert Langevin (principal flutist with the New York Philharmonica Orchestra). Also recorded with accordion and harp by Henry and Gretchen on A Classical Christmas CD.

Jeanne Belfy recognized Henry’s deceptively simple yet hauntingly beautiful and harmonically-pleasing Serenade as a “tuneful bon-bon” in a review published by The Double Reed. In addition, music critic George David Exoo refered to Henry’s Serenade when he wrote, “The melodic beauty of Henry’s compositions recalls Ralph Vaughan Williams’ memorable comment on atonal music: ‘And just what’s wrong with a good tune?’”
