Many of you will probably be familiar with the somewhat cheesy music that used to be featured on the BBC programme featuring artist Tony Hart. If memory serves, it was the music used whilst he showed a gallery of paintings and it has cropped up on many programmes since. But does anybody know what its called?

Thanks,

Mark

Sometimes it's best to go straight to the source. I found this on Tony's website:

Quote:
Well to be honest, it depends how old you claim to be as to which Gallery music you mean. With 'Vision On', the penulatimate Gallery music was the brilliant 'Leftbank 2' by the Lance Gambit Trio. It was referred to as "the Gallery theme" by all those on the programme. Another used was 'Cavatina' played by John Williams. Others associated with 'Vision On' were 'Accroche-Toi Caroline!' (Claude Vasori), 'Java' (Al Hirt) and the absolutely unforgettable 'Gurney Slade' by Max Harris.

If you mean 'Take Hart' it is very likely to be either 'Water Buffalo' or 'Maruerite' by Bob Morgan. That said, Kjartan Poskitt created 'No Worries' for the Smart Hart Gallery theme (1989-95)

The Prof Site has a whole section which explores many of these wonderful themes and sources for them as well as additional information about 'Vision On'.
