Format: COMPACT DISC
Edge, Kenneth; Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra; Tomlinson, Ernest; Cápová, Silvia
Ronald Binge was one of the most highly respected and successful English composers of his generation. He played a significant role in creating the Mantovani sound, but his big breakthrough came with the Elizabethan Serenade, which became an international hit. The evocative moods and memorable melodies of his best works saw their regular use as themes for TV and radio, and the soothing tones of Sailing By are still in use today as the close-down music for BBC Radio 4.
