Carl Davis: Heroines in Music

Carl Davis: Heroines in Music
ID: CDC010
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Orchestra

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.
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).
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.
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.

Beatles for Orchestra - Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Carl Davis

Beatles for Orchestra - Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Carl Davis
ID: CDC012
CDs: 1
Type: CD
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.
