About this item

London Salute was written in 1982 to mark the 60th anniversary of the BBC and was first performed in a broadcast (one of many in subsequent years) by the BBC Concert Orchestra under Ashley Lawrence. It is a march-like evocation of the capital, very much as an outsider would see it, all hustle and bustle, with ceremonial and tradition around every corner - yet never pompous.
The work is commercially recorded by the Royal Ballet Sinfonia conducted by Gavin Sutherlandon Marco Polo 8.225185 and by the same orchestra under Paul Lewis on ASV White Line WHL 2138.

Philip Lane (1950-)

Philip Lane (born 1950,England) is an English composer and musicologist. He is noted for his light music compositions and arrangements, as well as his painstaking work reconstructing lost film scores. Born in Cheltenham, he attended Pate's Grammar School and later read music at Birmingham University, where his tutors included Peter Dickinson and John Joubert. Whilst at University he developed a considerable interest in Lord Berners, about whom he wrote a thesis and ultimately became a trustee of the Berners Estate, overseeing the completion of all Berners' music on to CD. He taught music at Cheltenham Ladies' College from 1971 to 1998. During this time, he was a freelance composer for London publishers. He left Cheltenham Ladies' College in 1998 to concentrate on composing and his film restorations. In November 2010, Lane received an honorary Doctorate of Music from the University of Gloucestershire.
