The Music of Robert Stolz
...a sixty-word review by Paul Cherry
Robert Stolz (1880-1975) here has the monopoly hes the composer and hes conducting his orchestra. These 18 pieces are a long way from his Viennese roots and more to his film-music career. Attractive if stylised and commercial-sounding light music, the high, wide and handsome recording is wearing but adds to the glamour that seems to inform what Stolz was about.
