Malcolm Arnold
Film Music, Vol. 2
BBC Philharmonic - Rumon Gamba


Listening this morning:

 
Great album! As someone who taught at a girls' school for the past 33 years the St Trinian's music has a particular appeal!

The massive "elephant in the room" question that MUST be asked..... Does Vandermolen look as good in a frock as Alastair Sim?  The Forum has a right to know.

You have a distinguished air about you.  I think you might have spanked me in grade school for speaking loudly too.

Yes, I was rather pleased with it myself. I like the Chandos film series, but often compared to the originals they can be lifeless. Still it is great to be able to hear this music.

I'm not exactly sure what thread this post belongs in but the great film composer, John Williams, has a world premiere of his Violin Concerto No. 2 tomorrow!!!  His Violin Concerto No. 1 is fantastic, dark and turbulent yet tonal and reminds me of his admiration of Prokofiev.  I especially love the London Symphony Orchestra/Leonard Slatkin recording of the work so am very excited to hear this new concerto from Williams!
