Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant Customer Reviews
This recording features the London Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of David Parry performing music for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. As the flotilla made its way down the Thames, the pieces performed had historical tie-ins to the various locations that were being passed, which did indeed influence the selections chosen. Particularly pleasing are: Fantasia on Greensleeves (Vaughan Williams), Radio 4 UK Theme (Arr. Spiegl & Arian), Country Gardens (Grainger), The Globe Playhouse Overture (Walton), March from “The Dam Busters” (Coates), Nimrod from Enigma Variations (Elgar), Jupiter from “The Planets” (Holst – this is gorgeous!), the James Bond Theme is just a guilty pleasure, and Jack’s the Lad (Wood – this is just flat-out fun), Kudos goes to the French horns and Timpani, as they particularly stand out in several pieces. This disc is just great fun, and one hopes the Queen herself had a wonderful time not only at the celebration but listening to the music as well. Every work on the recording is performed well. Highly recommended.
