Great collection by "The King of Light Orchestral Music", the anglo-italian conductor, composer and violinist, Annunzio Mantovani and his orchestra. Four thematic LP are digitally remastered and transferred to a nice 3 CD box set: "Gems forever", "Continental encores", "Mantovani plays tangos" and "Film encores". The sound of Mantovani is unique, mainly due to the famous "cascading strings" effect, a technique that emulates the acoustic properties of a large hall such as a cathedral, through simulated reverberation. Enjoy one of the greatest light music masters, who sold over one million stereo albums and had six albums simultaneously in the US Top 30 in 1959.
