GSC034DL (STEREO) - Ketèlbey: In a Chinese Temple Garden; Bank Holiday; In the Mystic Land of Egypt; Jungle Drums; In a Persian Market; In a Monastery Garden; Bells Across the Meadow; With Honour Crowned - Vienna State Opera Orchestra/Armando Aliberti - Another collection of Ketèlbey's blend of Orientalisms and Englishness, again from an unlikely source, this time from Vienna. Maestro Aliberti (sometimes listed as "Alberto" as well as "Armando" on some recordings) leads the ubiquitous VSOO in these well-known pieces, eschewing the choruses in the works usually featuring voices. This transcription, from a World Record Club LP, recorded in 1957 and licensed to WRC by Westminster, came from long-time Klassic Haus contributor John Whitmore. Klassic Haus performed the digital repairs and remastering. CD cover, tray and disc art are included in the download file.
