Notes and Editorial Reviews

Jacob Gade was a master of light music, and it would be very interesting to hear the orchestrations of as many of these pieces as are available. The two suites of Cinema Music are particularly interesting, not just as music, but as real bits of entertainment history. The waltzes are wonderfully seductive and languorous, and the tangos sexy, proof that there's much more to Gade than just Tango Jalousie. Christian Westergaard plays this music with the right light touch, elegance, and nice rhythmic lilt. Dacapo's sonics are excellent. Fans of light music will certainly want to hear this, but as I suggested at the top of this review, Gade deserves more systematic attention. Hopefully Dacapo is listening.
