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.

Historical recording 1981

• A very special release from the archives of the SWR in commemoration of the 100th Anniversary of Mahler’s death!
• A melodious legacy by Kirill Kondrashin: The recording was generated shortly before his death in March 1981

It was only in the post-Stalinist period that Mahler's music began to receive performances in the former Soviet Union, and it was Kondrashin, amongst all the Soviet conductors, who led the way. In the same year that he gave the belated premiere of the Shostakovich 4th Symphony, he made the first Soviet-era recording of a Mahler Symphony, the Third.
Kondrashin’s Mahler was truly "Russian" in its whiplash orchestral discipline and scorching excitement, but it also was informed by a keen structural awareness and shapeliness of line. Kondrashin's interpretations are characterized by great urgency, an emotional state that perfectly compliments the complex musical canvas of Mahler's vast Sixth Symphony.
The Symphony No. 6 in A minor by Gustav Mahler, sometimes referred to as the Tragische ("Tragic"), was composed between 1903 and 1904 (rev. 1906). The tragic ending of No. 6 has been seen - by application of the 3 hollow hammer resounds in the Finale - according to the words by Alma, as an anticipation of the 3 serious strokes of fate following in his life 3 years later: The death of his oldest daughter, his demission by the Wiener Hofoper caused by intrigue and the diagnose of his incurable heart disease.
This is a recording that will be eagerly sought out by Mahler enthusiasts around the globe - not only for historic value,but as a document of one of Mahler's most innovative and courageous.

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.

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.

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.

1- 6 Michael Nyman Band and Orchestra
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.
