About

One of the strengths of the English Language is its willingness to absorb words from other cultures when a direct alternative does not already exist. Few English speakers realise how many of the words they use every day actually originated elsewhere.

Among these is 'Smörgåsbord' which the dictionary defines as “Swedish hors d’oeuvres (another import!) or buffet meal with a variety of dishes”. Translated into musical terms, it is the perfect word to describe this very varied collection.

When thinking of Light Music there is a tendency to forget that the Scandinavian countries also have a fine tradition in this area of musical appreciation. The likes of Grieg and Sibelius are universally applauded: hopefully this collection will add some more names to this elite list.
