Music that glows with nostalgic warmth

"Some of the lesser known music by Eric Coates can be heard on this recommendable CD. Indeed, this is a world premiere recording of his 1930 suite "The Seven Dwarfs" and a first complete recording of his 1932 suite "The Jester at the Wedding". If the light-hearted, colourful music characterized the spirit of the 1930s, it now positively glows with nostalgic warmth. A third suite, entitled "Four Centuries" dates from 1941. Coates represents each of the four last centuries with an appropriate dance. The 20th Century dance is peppered with saxophone additions and syncopated rhythms."
