Bryan Kelly: Orchestral Music

Classic FM Drive Featured Album, 8 December 2014. A suitably seasonal offering from an octogenarian master of light music.

A prolific composer of light orchestral music, Oxford-born Bryan Kelly has been writing in many different genres since the 1940s. This Heritage release features some of the music he has composed for orchestral forces, recorded by the excellent Royal Ballet Sinfonia to celebrate Kelly's 80th birthday.

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.
