Notes and Editorial Reviews

The popular song spoke of “Faraway places with strange sounding names”, and it is a fact that many of the places mentioned in the music in this collection were just names to most people when the recordings were made in the middle years of the last century. Since then ‘Globetrotting’ has become a pastime for millions, and the music has taken on the additional role of providing pleasant memories of past visits, both near and far from home. Our journey begins in Europe then circumnavigates the globe from west to east, stopping en route at various destinations that have provided inspiration for composers over the years.
