A film by David Connolly & Hannah Davis
Music Composed and Conducted by Carl Davis


In the second release of the Carl Davis Collection, we move to the world of the movies. A successful family collaboration must be a rarity but when it does work, it’s very satisfying. Hannah Davis and David Conolly have written and directed a highly effective thriller set in the claustrophobic world of the off-Broadway theatre. We follow the fortunes of the understudy to the leading lady as the production of Sophocles’ Electra moves through the cycle of casting, rehearsals, previews and ultimately what seems to be a successful run.

The score follows the convoluted plot. New York’s ambition and drive have a jazzy theme, led by trumpet star, Guy Barker; the ‘La, La, La Song’ (sung by the brilliant Mary Carewe) and it’s variations express the vulnerability of Rebecca and poor Mr. Davidovitch plays his tenor saxophone in the apartment above (Dave White). Then there is the inner world of the heroine - here Carl Davis is in the thrall of the perfect collaboration of Alfred Hitchcock and composer Bernard Herrman for inspiration. As the film moves towards its climax, all these elements combine.

1. THE FRENCH LIEUTENANT’S WOMAN
Carl Davis’s score for The French Lieutenant’s Woman won both BAFTA and Novello Awards in 1981. The film made international stars of Meryl Streep and Jeremy Irons, supported by the soaring romanticism of the music. This new suite runs the full gamut of emotions : despair to its ecstatic conclusion.
2. HOTEL DU LAC
Anita Brookner’s 1983 Booker Prize winning award was the inspiration for this 1986 BBC dramatization starring Anna Massey and Denholm Elliott. This new ‘Nocturne’ takes the raw materials of Carl Davis’s original score and shapes them into a touching and moody distillation of the original novel. Features Amy Dickson (alto saxophone).
3. PRIDE AND PREJUDICE
Voted No. 1 in the Radio Time’s ‘People’s Favourite Competition’, this 1995 series changed the face of dramatizations of classic novels. Carl Davis’s witty and expressive score matched the brilliance of Jane Austen’s scintillating text. His new suite in three movements introduces the family, their critics, and the fabulous love story of Elizabeth Bennett and Mr Darcy. Melvyn Tan who played the forte piano on the original soundtrack repeats his stunning performance on a full scale Steinway.
4. CRANFORD
This delightful series, filmed in 2007 and 2009 starring Judi Dench and Eileen Atkins, is the source for this new suite of selections from Carl Davis’s panoramic score based on Mrs Gaskell’s charming novel. From the high life of Hanbury Castle to the gossiping ladies of Cranford, all held together by Carl Davis’s spellbinding music.

Music for Abel Gance's classic silent film Napoleon: Eagle of Destiny
Carl Davis’ score for the epic 1921 silent movie Napoleon has come to be recognised as a milestone in modern day scoring for silent films. The film when shown is across three screens and is a monumental epic of over five hours in duration when screened in its entirety, and new fragments are still being discovered. Carl Davis was commissioned to write the score at over five hours it was to be the longest in cinema history. The release here is an abridged version. Kevin Brownlow responsible for restoring and bringing a revival of the film said it was the finest score he had ever heard for a film, it not only fitted precisely the action and mood of every sequence, it enhanced the emotional quality of the film. ‘Exalting’, is the only word to describe the effect. The critics were equally enthusiastic. ‘This is the cinematic wonder of the age’ said the Times, ‘and Carl Davis’ score provides a perfect accompaniment- subtle but grandiloquent.’
The score is a mixture of existing music arrangements of traditional material and new composition. During his research into the Hollywood series Carl Davis discovered that this method was the way the composers for silent film worked. This score is his tribute to them.

Collection: Orchestral Works

A new recording of classic Beatles tracks, conducted by Carl Davis and played by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.


A chance remark sparked off this CD. My old friend, Sandra Parr, Concerts Manager and backbone of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra said in passing, ‘You know we are always being asked to play Beatles, but we don’t have anything’. I replied, ‘I’ll give you something to play’. Indeed, the original recordings are still with us and I feel for a long time yet. But the melodies are very strong in themselves and if arranged sensitively would be a very pleasurable CD and fulfil a need. It would demonstrate the range of their talent from the early rock and roll influences to the quirky, with my own special preference for Paul McCartney’s soulful ballads. Carl Davis, March 2011
This album of The Beatles for Orchestra consists mainly of brand new orchestral arrangements of some of the most memorable Beatle compositions.
The Rhythm section was put down at Abbey Road using some of the finest session musicians in their field and with the Abbey Road Engineers. The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra was then recorded in Liverpool again using the Abbey Road mobile unit and engineers, finally the album was mixed at the Penthouse Suite at Abbey Road, to provide this unique recording of The Beatles for Orchestra.

Featuring Barbara Dickson, Tommy Williams & Lucy Parham


Carl's classic album from the 1980s. The album originally entitled 'Liverpool Pops at Home' grew out of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic's desire to put on a concert called Sounds of the City, a concert to show the richness of the musical legacy from the great musicians and composers of Liverpool. The evening hit all the right buttons and a recording followed.

Also featured is the much sought after Champions Suite, one of the most frequently requested of Carl’s works, from the acclaimed film Champions which charted top jockey Bob Champion’s fight with cancer.

Michael Nyman - Nyman / Greenaway Revisited - The Composers Cut Series - Vol. 2

Michael Nyman - Nyman / Greenaway Revisited - The Composers Cut Series - Vol. 2
ID: MNRCD106
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Film Music

Recorded in April 2005
The pictures in the CD, including the one of the CD cover are all taken by Michael Nyman.

Music composed, conducted and produced by Michael Nyman
Performed by the Michael Nyman Band

"The purpose of the Composer's Cut series is to present music from my soundtracks in a state of continuous evolution. As I transferred particular cues from film to concert hall both musical structures changed and performance styles developed, enabling the music, perhaps, to realise its true potential. So these recordings represent the Michael Nyman Band's state-of-performance as of spring 2005." - MN August 2005

Nyman/Greenaway revisited is a collection of the most popular music from the five soundtracks provided by the composer for Peter Greenaway's feature films from 1982 - 1991. Music from The Draughtsman's Contract, A Zed and Two Noughts, Drowning By Numbers, The Cook The Thief His Wife And Her Lover, & Prospero's Books is included.

Greenaway & Nyman had a very different relationship from that of most directors/composers, with Greenaway giving Nyman immense scope for the music. Nyman responded in kind with some of the best film music of the last quarter century. The working methods even varied from film to film. While the score of Zed and Two Noughts was composed without the composer even having seen a single frame of the film, the climactic scene of The Cook The Thief His Wife and Her Lover was quite deliberately choreographed to the pre-existing piece Memorial. The music for these films became widely known & hugely influential on a succeeding generation of composers and directors.

One of Nyman's most recently completed film scores (for The Libertine) returns the composer to a film with a 17th century setting, with director Laurence Dunmore claiming it was the memory of hearing the music to A Zed and Two Noughts many years ago that led him to commissioning Nyman for this film, while Michael Winterbottom (a director who has also worked extensively with Nyman), used music from The Draughtsman's Contract for his newest film A Cock and Bull Story. This collection of music has also become immensely well known to a wide public audience. Among the most frequently performed contemporary music, whether on classical radio stations, or through use in film, TV programming or advertising use, these pieces are as familiar to a mainstream audience as many contemporary pop and rock songs.

6 - 9 Kathryn Stott, solo piano / Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Michael Nyman

MGV (Musique à Grand Vitesse)
was commissioned by the Lille Festival, France. It was first performed on 26th September 1993 for the inauguration of the TGV North-European line. The rhythm, melody, harmony, motives and texture are constantly changing and is therefore one of the most exciting and inspiring pieces Michael Nyman has written.

Leading international choreographer Christopher Wheeldon was gripped by MGV’s energy, dynamism and emotion. He was so inspired that he made new choreography to the music of MGV for The Royal Ballet in 2006. Due to popular demand, the resultant work, DGV (Dance a Grande Vitesse), will be revived by The Royal Ballet at Covent Garden, London, on the following dates: 31st January, 6th, 9th, 20th and 21st February 2009.

The Piano Concerto
is based entirely on material selected from the soundtrack for Jane Campion’s film The Piano. It is a single movement work in four phases. 3 of them feature 18th and 19th century popular Scottish song tunes, which formed the basis of Ada’s music in the film. It is a wonderfully powerful and evocative score and there are planned performances of the Piano Concerto in the UK in 2009.
