Notes and Editorial Reviews

Certainly one of the most popular British conductors of his day, Sir Thomas Beecham was a sophisticated, intelligent and very witty personality incapable of not making a strong impression one way or another. A renaissance man from another era, we are fortunate he lived into the "golden age" of stereo recordings at EMI Records.

"Lollipops" was a Beecham term for lighter fare in classical music which, he could make the case, had more to offer than many other larger scale "serious" works in the classical canon.

The present disc is one of the most famous Beecham recordings with his Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and is a classic in every sense. Irresistible repertoire conducted with all
Read more of the trademark Beecham charm and recorded in classic EMI style. Essential for every complete classical record collection!
