Catalogue Number: 10J071
Label: Campion Cameo
Description: Ballet and light music from the gently eccentric 14th Baron Berners. Triumph is the most English of the scores here, written for Diaghilev (with Balanchine dancing) in1926, while Berners apes Russian, Oriental and Spanish styles elsewhere with the exception of the music for the 1947 Dickens film. Attractive and undemanding entertainment for anyone who missed it 20 years ago. Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra; Barry Wordsworth. Original 1986 EMI release.
