5.0 out of 5 stars Light music master, 22 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Symphonic Eric Coates (Audio CD)
This is a wonderful disc, mixing familiar with some not-so-familiar items from Albert Coates' extensive output.

Some of Coates' own recordings benefit, in a strange way, from being recorded in the dim and distant days of 78s which makes them sounds 'authentic'. However, the opulent modern sound of this disc not only makes for greater clarity but also makes Coates seem less on the fringes of early mid-Twentieth Century music than his own recordings perhaps do. One can sense that he was aware of Delius and Vaughan Williams as much as of Haydn Wood, for instance.

Whether you like 'light music' or 'British music' you should not hesitate to buy this disc. After all, the only distinction should be whether the music is good or not - and this is much more than good!

Just a wee error, Colin-it is Eric, not Albert, Coates (who was a conductor I understand)
