Music For Cards, Conversation And Cuddling - Harry Hermann

Auch Du Wirst Mich Einmal Betrugen
Music For Cards, Conversation And Cuddling
Harry Hermann and His Orchestra
Recorded by Deutsche Grammophon Polydor Series
Decca Records DL 8563

From the back cover: There is scarcely an area in the musical world in which Harry Hermann is not well versed, having gained recognition as conductor, composer, performer and arranger. His musical mastery covers the range of "serious" music from concert versions of the great operas to the music of George Gershwin (of which he is very fond). Born in Vienna, his intensive classical background is pointed up by the fact that at seventeen, he was playing with the Vienna Philharmonic under the direction of Richard Strauss.

From Billboard - January 20, 1958: A package of instrumental performances, lush and soothing is quality. Material is Continental in quality – primarily Viennese, written by Kalman, Benatsky, Stolz, etc. Cover is attractive, having a panel of four pictures which depict the title. Moderate potential.

From the back cover: Tito's talents are many, including musicianship that has  been acclaimed internationally, and writing of the songs which other Latin American orchestras constantly feature in their repertoire. And these talents, which came to light when Tito was a part of the Xavier Cugat orchestra, then burned brighter and brighter as his own career progressed, today have set Tito on a musical throne where the public has placed him, a King in his chosen profession.
