ID: CC0057
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Kolektion: Chamber MusicSubkolektion: Clarinet

An exciting new release featuring one of the best loved British concertos in the repertoire, and two premiere recordings. As well as the Finzi, David Campbell brings his authoritative playing to two works for clarinet and orchestra, which were specially written for him. The Fitkin is an approachable work which highlights both the lyrical and more challenging ideas associated with this eminent composer and Carl Davis, who as one of our most successful composers of film music, brings his skills as a more serious composer to a highly attractive new work.

David Campbell enjoys an international career as clarinet soloist and teacher. His solo engagements have taken him to over forty countries and he has performed a wide-ranging repertoire with many orchestras including: the Royal Philharmonic, London Philharmonic, English Chamber, London Mozart Players, BBC Concert, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, BBC Scottish, BBC Philharmonic, Orchestra of St. John's, Smith Square and many abroad.

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.

Music by Carl Davis from the TV series Cranford starring Dame Judi Dench

The year is 1841, Victoria was on the throne and music was at the height of the romantic period of Schumann, Mendelssohn, Berlioz and even the young Wagner. The great cities of Manchester and Liverpool were about to form their orchestras: the Hallé and the Liverpool Philharmonic. However this was far from the world of Cranford, Mrs. Gaskill's pseudonym for Knutsford. Local music was a small town band, the church and home music-making, however a score for this both comic and moving story had to account for the emotional lives of the characters and help tell their tale.

Cranford is a one-street town and this road brings all the populace in and out, the flowing motion giving the concept for the main title theme.

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.

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.

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.
