'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)

On a Spring note  [2'31]

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Sidney Torch (1908–1990) was born Sidney Torchinsky of Russian parents in East London. A talented pianist, he became a theatre organist between the Wars as well as a prolific composer and arranger, and then conducted the BBC’s Friday Night is Music Night for many years. On a Spring Note (1952) may be counted among his most popular compositions—thanks largely to its use in the cinema for Pathé Gazette.
