Cascading strings (also sometimes known as tumbling strings) was first developed by British composer/arranger Ronald Binge in 1951 for Annunzio Paolo Mantovani and his Mantovani Orchestra, with whom the sound would be most associated. In 1951, Decca was keen to have something from Mantovani that would rival the big American concert orchestras, and the first innovation that they came up with was to dramatically increase the string section of the orchestra – what Mantovani called a mass of strings. The sound would become the Mantovani sound, and propel him to worldwide fame. Nowadays its associated with the style of easy listening known as beautiful music. There were also a group with routating musicians that recorded a lot of classical music under the name of The Cascading Strings. The albums were released in several countries but its the German editions that have become the most sought for due to the series of naked women on the cover.
