Heritage Orchestral

Bryan Kelly: Orchestral Music

Royal Ballet Sinfonia, Barry Wordsworth (conductor)Bryan Kelly: Orchestral Music

HTGCD285 – 5060332661039

A prolific composer of light classical music, Bryan Kelly has been writing in many different genres since the 1940s. This Heritage release features some of the music Kelly has composed for orchestral forces, recorded this year with the Royal Ballet Sinfonia to celebrate his 80th year.

‘The orchestral playing is splendid and full of vitality with excellent solo work and obvious dedication to the music…A great addition to the light music discography.’
– John Whitmore, Music Web International, 20th March 2015

‘John Turner is the nimble soloist here, and Barry Wordsworth and the Royal Ballet Sinfonia tender spick-and-span support; indeed the playing throughout is commendably alert, and the sound agreeably clean to match. Altogether, a very likeable compendium.’
– Andrew Achenbach, Gramophone, March 2015

CLASSIC FM DRIVE FEATURED ALBUM
Kelly’s music is highly accessible and the two Christmas suites “A Christmas Celebration” and “Nativity Scenes” are the perfect accompaniment to the festive season. A lovely collection of bright orchestral tunes by a composer who is well worth discovering.’
– John Brunning, Classic FM, 8th December 2014
