Our four single-album releases are a very diverse group covering hundreds of years of music. Brass in Battle features eighteen themes from war movies, military songs and marches, and other military music, including The Dambusters March, “Jupiter” from Holst‘s Planets suite, the R.A.F. March, and many others performed by the English Brass Consort and organist Kevin Bowyer, lead by conductor Neil Taylor. Another album of 20th-century music, Palm Court Music: “Grand Hotel” captures a vintage performance of the BBC Grand Hotel Orchestra live at the Grand Hotel in Eastbourne, East Sussex. The seventeen tracks on this album are all classics from the Golden Age of Light Music, including film themes and other light orchestra favorites, for splendid enjoyment and refined relaxation.
Turning back the clock several centuries, we have Johann Sebastian Bach‘s masterpiece for the keyboard, The Goldberg Variations, performed by esteemed English harpsichordist David Ponsford. Nearly three hundred years after they were first published, this work still stands as one of the absolute triumphs of music for the keyboard. Early Music Portraits is a collection of works from 17th- and 18th-century England and Germany, presented by acclaimed conductor and composer Christopher Ball and the Praetorius Consort. The album begins with nine Elizabethan-era “portraits” of characters and individuals, composed by such musical luminaries as John Dowland and William Byrd, followed by Erasmus Widmann‘s Portraits in Music suite, selections from John Maynard‘s Twelve Wonders of the World, and closes with Georg Philipp Telemann‘s Trio Sonata in C.
