Reviews

'Ronald Corp and the New London Orchestra play with their familiar accomplishment and affection and, if anything, an even surer grasp of pace than before. The CD is gratifyingly full and excellently recorded. More, please!' (Gramophone)

'Throughout, Corp … has one great asset – charm, and I defy you not to sit listening to these appealing morceaux without a permanent grin on your face' (International Record Review)

'Corp’s performances are sumptuous' (The Sunday Times)

'An artfully cherry-picked selection played with affection and zest, which will leave you with a warm glow – and perhaps a feeling of regret that no one writes music like this any more' (Classic FM Magazine)

'If you've a soft spot for this kind of repertoire you'll love it' (BBC CD Review)
Clive Richardson (1909–1998) was born in Paris of British parents and studied at the Royal Academy of Music. He composed a great deal of orchestral music, among it Melody on the Move (1946), which also gave its name to a radio series. It is heard here in an arrangement by Ronald Hanmer (1917–1994).
