Robert Stolz (1880-1975) here has the monopoly – he’s the composer and he’s 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.
