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)
George Melachrino (1909–1965) was born in London and studied at Trinity College of Music, working as violinist, violist, saxophonist and clarinettist in various bands before directing his own dance orchestra at London’s Café de Paris. Of his various original compositions we here hear Woodland Revel, an insistent and engaging little piece dating from 1949.
