Captured in high quality audio for the first time the glorious music from the golden age of Hollywood - the MGM film musicals. The scores have been painstakingly restored and arranged by conductor John Wilson and are performed here by the John Wilson Orchestra.

John Wilson is one of the most astute and knowledgeable musicians about the whole Hollywood film music genre. Over a period of years he has presented programmes throughout the UK and in other countries exploiting his skill knowledge and musicianship in this genre. The 2011 BBC Prom celebrating 75 years of MGM Musicals televised and watched by 3.5 million took John Wilson&rsquos lifetime&rsquos work to a new level of recognition.

In the USA his arrangements and orchestrations have been played by the Chicago Symphony Boston Pops National Symphony of Washington and Cleveland orchestras. When not championing film music revivals around the world he is active as a Classical orchestral and operatic conductor with all the leading UK orchestras and across Europe Australia and is a keen advocate of British 'light music' composers.
