Format: COMPACT DISC
Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra; Slovak Philharmonic Chorus; Leaper, Adrian; Cápová, Sylvia
Albert Ketèlbey was an excellent pianist, touring Britain and honing his craft as an expert tunesmith as musical director of London’s Vaudeville Theatre. Hugely popular in its day, the delightful miniature In a Monastery Garden placed Ketèlbey at the forefront of British Light Music composers. From the unashamedly sentimental Bells Across the Meadows to the impressive Suite Romantique and the famous In a Persian Market, Ketèlbey’s music takes us back to a nostalgic era of palm court salons and imaginative reverie. (From Marco Polo 8.223442).
