Notes and Editorial Reviews

Best known for sweetly sentimental arrangements and the "cascading strings" effect invented by his arranger Ronnie Binge and heard in the 101 Strings as well as his own orchestra, Mantovani was the master of pops concerts, stereo demonstrations and elevator music around the world. Here however is his early sojourn into the classical repertoire, with popular short pieces by Offenbach, Schubert, Rachmaninov, Mendelssohn and more. Two albums in one CD.
