More Info:

Acknowledged by Sir Arthur Sullivan as his musical heir, Edward German enjoyed huge acclaim during his lifetime. His dances are 'charged with the fragrant essence of the greenwood' and the Overture to Nell Gwyn, with it's richly English themes, explains Elgar's liking for German's music. The gloriously romanticized Gipsy Suite pays subtle homage to Dvorák; the dances from Henry VIII were responsible for his early celebrity; and Tom Jones (on 8.660270-71) and Merrie England were two of his greatest stage successes. Conductor Adrian Leaper is a prominent conductor in Naxos' roster and in addition to those light music discs he has also recorded formidable recordings of Elgar and Wieniawski (8.572952), and Havergal Brian (8.572014), among many others.
