Jacob Gade


Jacob Gade (1879-1963), who wrote the world-famous Tango Jalousie, was one of Copen­hagen's leading conductors. In his waltzes we hear the sound of the 1920s and sense the mood of the days when every proper restaurant had its own orchestra. Gade was also a pioneer of cinema music, and his Kino-Musik gives a complete impression of how motion pictures were accompanied in the Golden Age of the silent film.
