Notes and Editorial Reviews

Palm Court Pleasures is Ensemble Vivant’s debut recording which literally put the group on the map and created a sensation. From their inception Ensemble Vivant has had a love for diverse music ranging from classical to ragtime. The album includes classical standards — Arrival of the Queen of Sheba by Handel, Waltz in A-flat Major, Op. 69, No. 1 by Chopin and Hungarian Dance No. 5 by Brahms — but also great ragtime — Bethena Waltz and Elite Syncopations by Scott Joplin as well as songs from the stage — Someone to Watch Over Me by George Gershwin and I’ll See You Again by Noel Coward.
