The Westminster Waltz

1956; linking theme from 'In town tonight'

One composer without whom no collection of British light music would be complete is Robert Farnon (1917–2005). The Westminster Waltz (1956) became widely familiar as one of the linking themes for the radio programme In Town Tonight.

from notes by Andrew Lamb © 1997

Aucun recueil de musique légère britannique ne saurait être complet sans Robert Farnon. La Westminster Waltz (1956) devint fort populaire comme l’un des thèmes de liaison du programme radiophonique In Town Tonight.

Français: Hypérion

Ein Komponist, ohne den keine Sammlung britischer Unterhaltungsmusik komplett wäre, ist Robert Farnon (1917-2005). The Westminster Waltz (1956) ist hingegen als eine der Überbrückungsmelodien des Radioprogramms In Town Tonight bekannt geworden.
