'Should more than satisfy those who like a good tune! Many of the old favourites here will be forever associated with radio and television signature tunes … Nostalgia is the key to many of thse pieces, but a collection such as this reminds us that the thing which really binds this collection together is the quality of the music itself' (BBC Music Magazine)


Carissima  [3'41]

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Exceptionally, the senior composer represented in the present collection needs no introduction, for Edward Elgar (1857–1934) was Britain’s greatest symphonist. But he never disdained light music and composed many charming little pieces in the genre. Born in Worcester, he was active largely in the west of England before gaining widespread fame in his forties with the ‘Enigma’ Variations. Elgar went on to write two symphonies and his Violin Concerto before, in 1914, he composed the gentle Carissima for small orchestra.
