The internationally famous composer and conductor, Carl Davis, CBE has written some of the most memorable and moving scores for films and documentary series about World War II. This CD re-works five of these into Concert Suites.
The World at War, the ground-breaking Emmy Award winning twenty-six part series introduced by Carl Davis’s stirring theme is hailed as definitive.
Starring John Thaw and the fastest selling DVD ever, Goodnight Mr Tom is the touching story of a disturbed East End evacuee finding a new home in the idyllic English countryside. The music reflects the joys of country life, as well as the tragic events of the Blitz.
Award-winning Echoes That Remain, produced by the Simon Wiesenthal Foundation, celebrates the culture of the Shetetl, the small Jewish settlements of Eastern Europe. Carl Davis’s score incorporates traditional Yiddish songs, as well as underlining the dark days of the destruction at the hands of the Nazis.
Anne Frank Remembered is an Academy Award winning film that gave fascinating insights into her life both before and after her years in the famous attic. Carl Davis’s score expresses the poetic spirit and courage of a budding writer, as well as the horrendous events closing in on her.
The Snow Goose - the most substantial work on the CD is based on Paul Gallico’s romantic novel, was beautifully translated to film, starring Jenny Agutter (winning her an Emmy) and Richard Harris. This new ‘Rhapsody’ combines all the major themes, closing with the music for the heroic rescue from Dunkirk.
