""Iranian folk songs" Actually, it's Persian Classical Music"

- By my low standards that counts as a near miss! Fascinating stuff, Anabella. Thanks! :-)

Charles Mackerras Conducting The Pro Arte Orchestra

A: Overture "The Bartered Bride"
B: Ov: "The Daughter Of The Regiment"
An early stereo Pye, sadly without its original centres. The Smetana is the better-known of the pieces (apparently) but for my money there are more hummable bits in the Donizetti. I can't recall having heard either of them before. So much music, so little time...

Die Innspatzen

A3: Es Gibt Ja Nur Ein Zillertal Allein
B1: Allweil Lustig
B2: Innsbruck, Du Wunderschone Alpenstadt
All yodels, accordion and jollity. I can't help but be struck by the lack of songs about English places, compared to those in other countries - I don't think there's a hamlet in Ireland that hasn't has a song written about it. Why has nobody ever come up with 'My Beautiful West Bromwich', or 'Halifax, Home Of My Heart'? It's a mystery.

Sergio Fiorentino

A: Kinderscenen, Op. 15 Part 1
B: Kinderscenen, Op. 15 Part 2
Another early Summit release. Melodic, accessible stuff; a series of short pieces run together. Sometimes playful, sometimes dreamy, occasionally mildly rumbustious - 'Listen With Mother' music, for those who are old enough to remember that radio programme. Nice.

Auguste Du Maurier

A1: Waltz In E Flat Major Op. 18
A2: Waltz In D Flat Major Op. 64 / 1
B1: Waltz In C Sharp Minor Op 64 / 2
B2: Waltz In A Flat Major Op. 69 / 1
Filling-in a gap in the Summit catalogue. I actually recognized the second track: it's the 'Minute Waltz'. It's a good job it's not the Minute-And-A-Half waltz, as there's a great big blob of something terminally nasty over most of the first track. The tracks on the second side are more leisurely but equally tuneful.
