Notes and Editorial Reviews

Visit the Palm Court Orchestra of the great ocean liners of the last century (in this case, the ill-fated voyage of the Titanic). The music is romantic without being sentimental, colourful but never flamboyant. A tender soiree, a romantic tete-a-tete, the anticipation of a jour fixe are what come to mind when listening to this album of fond reminiscences from a vanished but perhaps more colourful and intimate era.

Also Available - Trans-Siberian Express / I

The romance of rail travel, captured by novelists from Agatha Christie to Graham Greene, comes to life in I Salonisti's musical odyssey on the Trans-Siberian Express as it makes its way from Moscow to the shores of the Pacific.
