Editorial Reviews

2009 release. Now highly praised alongside Elgar, Delius and other select British `niche' composers, Eric Coates won world renown during his own lifetime. The son of a Nottinghamshire country doctor, he began with at least two of the right elements: an uncommon flair for melody allied to outstanding musical proficiency. Graduating from professional instrumentalist first to `balladeer' then orchestral conductor, having once raised `light music' as his banner, Coates devoted the rest of his life to exploring and paving its many byroads. 19 tracks. Bygone Days.
