The Hamilton Pop Orchestra – Strings and Things

Sleeve Notes:

The Sound of Strings, Violins, Violas, Cellos and Double Basses, a musical combination second to none. Add a few more musical voices and we have ‘The Hamilton Pop Orchestra’, an ensemble formed of some of the best names in the business.

For our programme we have chosen some of the loveliest melodies ever written, including David Rose’s sparkling ‘Holiday For Strings’, the haunting strains of ‘Charmaine’ and ‘Lonely Ballerina’, that evocative post card in sound, ‘April in Portugal’, plus the sprightly ‘Marching Strings’ and ‘Swedish Rhapsody’. The latter was used as the theme music for a brilliant murder film directed by Wendy Toye. No matter the subject, each piece receives the definite ‘Hamilton treatment’ which means many hours of listening pleasure.
