Description: Koehne's disc appears on the back page since it is so close to "light music" as makes no difference. The Tivoli Dances and Palm Court Suite are both backward looking ballet suites, the former toward Australian vaudeville days and the latter a nostalgic look, filtered through elements of minimalism, at the Palm Court genre of small ensemble dance-club music of the turn of the 20th century. Shaker Dances will sound a bit Coplandesque due to the shared source material. Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra; Richard Mills.
