Product Description

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.
