The Golden Age of Light Music: The Hall Of Fame - Vol. 3

Item No. GLCD 5162

Light Music

Price GBP 5.10 / USD

Units  
Medium: CD 
Release Date: 06.11.2009

This collection is intended as a tribute to talented musicians who have made an important contribution to our enjoyment of Light Music, either as conductors, composers or arrangers – and occasionally as all three. Like the two previous CDs in this series (GLCD 5120 & 5124), in order to qualify for inclusion in any kind of Hall of Fame there is a pre-requisite that recognition should already have been given for outstanding achievement. The Guild “Golden Age of Light Music” series is compiled by enthusiasts who understand that keen collectors probably already have many of the “best of” pieces in their music libraries. So you are not being offered a compilation featuring only the best known works performed by each orchestra, but a careful choice which mixes the familiar with - occasionally - the unknown.
