Product details

Australia's grand tradition of orchestral 'light classics' is showcased on this definitive collection. All-time favourites such as Arthur Benjamin's Jamaican Rumba and Alfred Hill's Waiata Poi are joined by lesser-known but equally appealing works like Tommy Tycho's Lifesavers' March and Mike Kenny's Ocean Road.

The Adelaide Symphony Orchestra have long championed this repertoire having recorded several albums in the 1960s and 70s. With this recording, conducted by Guy Noble, these timeless Australian light classics are presented in sparkling new digital recordings for a new generation of listeners to enjoy
