Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

This release is a welcome addition to the ASV stable of British light music. Amusingly, Binge's most famous number, "Elizabethan Serenade", is placed first as if to invite us to get the nostalgia for the Home Service's Children's Favourites programme off our chests and then proceed with the business of exploring the wealth of other classics which show just why "Ronnie" was so valued by the likes of the great Mantovani as a composer/arranger. Having said that, the first CD features the (slightly) more serious side to Binge's work--including the Saxophone Concerto, jaunty and melting by turns, and the substantial, intriguing Saturday Symphony. Both of these works are conducted by Binge himself. The second CD takes us squarely inside the dreamy Mantovanian world, including pieces incorporating the famous cascading strings effect that was such a Binge trademark. More information on these numbers in the sleeve note would have been welcome. All told, five orchestras do service over the two CDs. Naturally enough, some offer better performances than others and the quality of recorded sound also varies, although nothing that need put off existing or potential Binge fans. Dream away... --Andrew Green

Music of Ronald Binge, This is a fabulous CD. I had done everthing to tape this via Radio 4, the last music at the shutdown of Radio 4 at 12.45, nighttime.The CD was such a wonderful find and it has a great feeling of calmness when driving.I play it all the time with great love. Many Many thanks.

A first class service from High Street Books for supplying this rare item for a reasonable price and in pristine condition, definably for the Mantovani era and its listeners, listened to the Water Mill on classic FM, it,s peaceful background music for country car journeys and its charm never fades. As they say they don,t make them like this any more, Ronald Binge is the master of this type of music. Did you know that he owned 3 ROLLS ROYCE cars but still used his bus pass! try it on a car ride and it,s the only sound that you will hear.
