The Watermill
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Ronald Binge (1910–1979) was born in Derby and worked his way from a position as cinema organist, orchestral pianist and piano-accordionist to arranger for the Mantovani Orchestra. As such he evolved the ‘cascading strings’ effect for which Mantovani became famous. A serious student of orchestration, Binge also experimented to good effect in his own compositions. The Watermill (1958), a pastoral piece, is written for oboe and strings and was used as the signature tune for the BBC television series The Secret Garden.
