Notes & Reviews:

A native of Luxembourg, Lou Koster was largely self-taught as a composer, flourishing in the interwar period as a pianist whose activities included accompanying silent films. Orchestrated from piano originals, pieces such as Lore-Lore and Moselträume were radio hits in the 1930s, and Koster became renowned for subtle, sensuous light music filled with unexpected turns and emotional nuances.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
The composer, Lou Koster, was a woman and lived from 1889 to 1973 in Luxembourg. Most of this music was written in the 1920s and was played on Luxembourg Radio between the wars. It's salon music for a small orchestra, and it's played here by fewer than 40 musicians. We think of "light music" as a basically British phenomenon, and we know there were German and Austrian salon orchestras as well. Here is one from Luxembourg playing music by one of their own composers. I was determined to find something catchy to hold my attention, so I listened thru it twice.
