Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

These are all premiere recordings of the music of neglected pianist, lyricist, and composer Reginald King (1904 - 1991). He was a soloist with Henry Wood at the Proms, but his greatest successes were between 1929 and 1964, when he gave over 1,500 BBC broadcasts with the Reginald King Orchestra. This CD includes Mark Bebbington playing "Song of Paradise," which was King's signature tune, and its mixture of warmth, nostalgia, romanticism, and sheer escapism sums up the piano oeuvre of this composer.
