Jack Strachey (1894–1972), born in Brighton, became known between the Wars for his theatre songs, among them ‘These Foolish Things’ (1936). Later he composed orchestral pieces for light-orchestral libraries, including the march Theatreland (1940) which provides testimony to his love of the theatre and is heard here in its original orchestration by Don Bowden (1906–1966).

Né à Brighton, Jack Strachey (1894-1972) devint célèbre, dans l’entre-deux-guerres, pour ses chansons de théâtre, dont «These Foolish Things» (1936). Plus tard, il composa des pièces orchestrales pour des collections de musique orchestrale légère, incluant la marche Theatreland (1940, entendue ici dans l’orchestration originale, signée Don Bowden [1906-1966]), preuve de son amour du théâtre.
