Just wonderful music

"Addinsell was unknown to me until I heard the Warsaw Concerto on the radio. I was hooked. There are hints of Rachmaninov in the Concerto, and the lyricism is quite moving. I bought the cd for the Concerto, but I was absolutely stunned by the beauty of the rest of the music on this disc. All of it is melodic, sometimes wistful, sometimes melancholy, sometimes joyful. "Blithe Spirit" is wonderful, as is "The day will dawn" and "The Passionate Friends". The Royal Ballet Sinfonia play as if they truly love this music, and they are captured well by the ASV engineers. It is a delight from beginning to end."
