 Update me on new releases by Romberg

Sigmund Romberg (01/01/1887 - 01/01/1951)

The composer Sigmund Romberg was a colourful and gregarious character in that bygone era of show business when melodic content really counted. He was also a man who never had any overblown illusions about his work. He always said his songs and shows were distinctly middle-brow and he was happy to supply them to an equally middle-brow audience that obviously approved. When some critics said his shows were too sweetly melodic, another answered, It looks like nobody likes Rommys music but the public. By his own admission, Romberg was not a composer who inhabited the same artistic heights as George Gershwin, Cole Porter or Richard Rodgers. In Rombergs later years, after he had settled in Hollywood, he hosted musical evenings at his home that featured the work of these and other composers he admired, who regularly attended, but the parties always seemed to end with party-goers asking to hear Rombergs music, too, usually with the encouragement of many of these more artistically respected composers.
