Whether located in small back rooms in London or New York, popular songwriters have never found it difficult to write catchy melodies about holiday destinations in Europe. But the traffic has certainly not been just one way, because many romantic and appealing songs of the last century have been created by talented composers fortunate to live in the idyllic surroundings they extolled in their songs. This mixture of both original and inspirational music is performed by a variety of orchestras from Britain, America and Europe, providing a truly cosmopolitan tribute to a continent which never ceases to lure and embrace travellers from all over the world.
