Ronald Binge

Ronald Binge was born on 15th July 1910. As a boy, he was both a chorister and organist. Composing began at the age of seventeen when he wrote for a small cinema orchestra. In 1935, his association with Mantovani began, and Ronnie did all the arrangements for his orchestra at that time.

Ronnie was a Link Training Officer for the RAF in World War Two.  In 1945, he married Vera, one year after they had met for the first time. After the war, he spent a lot of time orchestrating others’ works and returned to work for Mantovani. It was during this period that he composed most of his works. In 1957 he  won the  Ivor Novello Award  for the best light orchestral composition of the year, Elizabethan Serenade.

His co-operation with Mozart Edition (Great Britain) Ltd began in 1960 and he recorded many works for Mozart Records. Ronald, who was a lively and exuberant character, died in 1980.
