THE GOLDEN AGE OF LIGHT MUSIC Continental Flavour

£7.99

Product description

The Golden Age of Light Music series comes from Switzerland, a land where few or none of the varied selections in the series originated. For historians the series is a gold mine; few traditions that were once so universally familiar have disappeared so completely from common consciousness. The music had different labels in different countries; in America, most of the selections on Continental Flavour would be labeled easy listening, while in Europe, at least outside France, some pieces would qualify as jazz. However labeled, they are short instrumental compositions for full orchestra, heavy on the strings yet often highly inventively orchestrated, using popular rhythms in a very conservative and controlled way. Some of the pieces are borrowed from popular song (The Last Time I Saw Paris), traditional fun (Portuguese Washerwoman), or film music, and some are original compositions.
