Notes and Editorial Reviews

Light orchestral music flourished in America throughout the 20th century. It probably had its first great surge of popularity during the 1930s, thanks to the expansion of radio, closely followed by the influence of Hollywood and the magnificent scores that were composed for many films – largely by the group of now famous émigrés from Europe. Long playing records helped to spread the enjoyment of light music in millions of homes, and the famous orchestras heard in this collection were widely appreciated for their high standards. Popular melodies acquired bright, fresh scores, which often transformed them into minor concertos: the ingenious settings dreamed up by the gifted arrangers were frequently way beyond the aspirations of Read more the tunesmiths, who merely thought they had conjured up something for errand boys to whistle.(ADD MONO 73:45)
