Penguin Guide, January 2009

Coleridge-Taylor wrote much delightful orchestra music, the most famous being the charming Petite Suite de concert. The composer’s feeling for the genre is also apparent in the Four Characteristic Waltzes. Each is nicely coloured: there is a nostalgic Valse mauresque. The Gipsy Suite is a piquantly coloured four-movement work of considerable appeal, while the Othello Suite, beginning with a lively dance, has an engaging Willow Song and ends with a stirring Military March. Performances and recording are excellent, and this is altogether a winning if essentially lightweight collection, perhaps more for aficionados than for the general collector.

American Record Guide

"These are commendable and affectionate performances from the RTE Orchestra under Adrian Leaper's spirited lead and with very good recorded sound."

Classic CD

"Here is substantial music, played with warmth and affection...a most welcome addition to Marco Polo's British Light Music collection."
