From the rustic honesty of Shaker Dances to the nostalgia of the Palm Court Suite and the affectionate good-humour of Tivoli Dances, this album of music by Australian composer Graeme Koehne is a celebration of the pleasure to be had from the sound of a fine orchestra. Koehne writes not to record the angst of the modern age, but to affirm in music the values of beauty and simplicity, and this CD provides an oasis of musical enjoyment to refresh the ears and the heart.
