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)
Albert W Ketèlbey (1875–1959) was born in Aston, Warwickshire, and achieved his reputation with a series of pieces evoking exotic locations. One of the best loved is In a Persian Market (1920), evoking images of camel-drivers, jugglers and snake-charmers, and heard here complete with its chorus of beggars singing: ‘Baksheesh, baksheesh Allah. Empshi, empshi, empshi’.

Albert W. Ketèlbey (1875-1959), né à Aston (Warwickshire), se forgea une réputation grâce à une série de pièces teintées d’exotisme. L’une des préférées, In a Persian Market (1920), évoquant chameliers, jongleurs et charmeurs de serpents, est entendue ici avec son chœur de mendiants.

Albert W. Ketèlbey (1875-1959) wurde in Ashton in der Grafschaft Warwickshire geboren und machte sich einen Namen mit einer Reihe von Stücken, die exotische Schauplätze heraufbeschwören. Eines der beliebtesten ist In a Persian Market (1920), das Vorstellungen von Kameltreibern, Jongleuren und Schlangenbeschwörern hervorruft und hier einschließlich seines Bettlerchors zu Gehör gebracht wird.
