Barn Dance (From Seven Brides for Seven Brothers) / John Wilson Orch. Prom 22

Barn Dance from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (dir. Stanley Donen, MGM 1954) Composer: Gene de Paul; Orchestrator: Conrad Salinger John Wilson Orchestra BBC Prom 22; August 3rd 2009 Royal Albert Hall, London I am posting this because, surprisingly, no-one else has. I thought it was the highlight of the concert. John Wilson, the dashing conductor, apparently reconstructed the score by listening to the soundtrack – amazing! His attractive ‘hand-picked’, orchestra look like they enjoyed playing the hell out of it.
