Including Alto flute, Viennese oboe, Bass clarinet and more
"While Woodwinds I is fine for basic woodwind arrangements, certain instruments on Woodwinds II are indispensable for serious orchestral work. The combined cost of the two collections is hefty, but quality usually comes at a price; if you need a comprehensive woodwind section capable of every musical nuance under the sun, the pair offer an immaculate solution." - Sound on Sound
This Collection contains all of the instruments necessary for the realization of large orchestral instrumentations. Also, you will find two completely new instruments, a small part of which were already added to the Horizon Series French Oboe: the English horn II and the small clarinet in Eb.
