Notes and Editorial Reviews

One of Ronald Corp and the New London Orchestra’s most beloved albums: fifteen gems of the light music repertoire from across Europe, with music by Alfvén, Fetrás, Halvorsen, Heykens, Hellmesberger, Jessel, Lehár, Lincke, Pierné, Waldteufel, Weinberger and others. As with the British programmes, the composers’ names may not be familiar but much of the music will be, especially to older listeners—‘Ah, so that’s what that’s called!’ they’ll say. The Gounod Funeral march, for example, will be familiar as the signature tune of Alfred Hitchcock.
