 Mart Sander


The English stage musical reached its zenith in the period from 1910 to around 1930, combining the genres of music hall and operetta to wonderful effect, before the Broadway musical style became the rage. Most of the composers of these fabulous shows have neen long forgotten except by enthusiasts, but now their light and joyful tunes are being rediscovered.

This album follows ’TheMonckton Album’ - one of the best selling albums in the Divine Arts catalogue, and feature orchestral and vocal work by herman Finck, director of the Palace Theatre in London and one of Egland’s best loved composers and conductos in his day. Superb performances by Pirjo Lavendi and kelli Uustani (sopranos) Mart Sader (baritone) and the Orchestra of Bel Etage. 

 "...The sound on this disc is clear, but the balances definately favor the orchestra. It is an interesting look at some forgotten light music. I think people who enjoy Gilbert and Sullivan and German operetta will like this, too. "

Maria Nockin - Fanfare - November/December 2012


"...The present CD is an excellent cross-section of Finck’s music...Divine Arts has made an excellent release with their exploration of Herman Finck. They have captured the mood and the spirit of the Edwardian and Georgian times. The singers and the band sound perfectly home in the music hall and end-of-pier environment – and that is not a slight or criticism. The performers are all from the Bel-Etage Theatre in Tallinn, Estonia, which was itself an old music-hall. The company is well regarded in its championship of British music including Gilbert & Sullivan and Lionel Monckton... The sound quality is good."

John France - Musicweb-international.com - June 2012


"Spirited Estonian performers, charming British theatre music: a delightful mix. Selections from Decameron Nights show Hermann Finck at his best."

Geoff Brown - BBC Music Magazine - April 2012
