Notes & Reviews:

Wonderful hits from the 50's, a collection placing more emphasis on familiar pop standards in sparkling and imaginative arrangements. Fans of this series, the Golden Age of Light Music will discover many original pieces that stand on their own as light miniatures. With impressive scores from classical and film score composers such as Maria Nascimbene with The Vikings and Room at the Top, Benjamin Frankel's Alec Guiness classic The Man in the White Suit as well as several non-light symphonies. All of this music is full of the whimsy and high spirits that could only really exist half-a-century ago.
