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)
‘Trevor Duncan’ (1924–2005) was born as Leonard Trebilcock in Camberwell, London. He was a BBC sound engineer for music programmes before the success of his early creations encouraged him to take up composition full time. The delightfully wistful The Girl from Corsica (1959) was inspired by a real-life Corsican girl he met on holiday one year.

Né à Camberwell (Londres) en 1924, Trevor Duncan, de son vrai nom Leonard Trebilcock, fut ingénieur du son pour les programmes musicaux de la BBC avant que le succès de ses premières créations ne l’encourageât à composer àplein temps. The Girl from Corsica (1959), délicieusement nostalgique, fut inspirée par une jeune Corse rencontrée, une année, en vacances.

Français: Hypérion

Trevor Duncan wurde 1924 als Leonard Trebilcock im Londoner Stadtteil Camberwell geboren. Er arbeitete als Tontechniker für Musikprogramme der BBC, ehe der Erfolg seiner ersten eigenen Stücke ihn dazu ermutigte, sich hauptberuflich dem Komponieren zu widmen. Das wunderbar wehmütige The Girl from Corsica (1959) wurde von einem echten korsischen Mädchen inspiriert, das er eines Jahres im Urlaub kennengelernt hatte.
