Silva Screen Coming Soon

The Game of Thrones Symphony (physical release)

Friday, February 24th, 2017
Performed by The City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra
Music Composed by Ramin Djawadi

In 2011 composer Ramin Djawadi was first asked to score a new TV series called Game of Thrones. In its first season much of the music was written for a small string ensemble, and filled out with synthetic pads and percussion. Over the course of the next six seasons the music budget got bigger and bigger to match the ever-increasing viewing figures the show was enjoying. This release celebrates the rich tapestry of music over the six series with the full firepower of an 80 piece symphony orchestra and choir.

Game of Thrones really is a television phenomenon. HBO’s epic small screen adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s series of fantasy tomes continues to draw in record audiences around the world, and shows no signs of slowing down. Indeed some 8.9m people tuned in to the Season Six finale in the US and with repeats, recordings and on-demand viewings taken into consideration, it is estimated that Game of Thrones enjoys an average of 23m viewers per installment. With a whopping thirty-eight Emmy Awards (and counting), this series remains the darling of prime-time pay TV.

With so much music created for the sixty episodes so far broadcast, this album can of course only take in so much. The particular cues and themes it does highlight, though, lend themselves beautifully to this symphonic re-imagining.

Sherlock – Series 4

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017
Music by David Arnold and Michael Price

Seven years from its debut Sherlock is a worldwide phenomenon licensed to over 225 territories and equally popular with cinema showings alongside TV transmissions. In the UK Season 3 was the most watched TV drama series since 2001 attracting 11.8m viewers. 

Great mystery stories, the cream of British acting talent, stunning production values and of course the vital musical score from David Arnold (Independence Day, The World Is Not Enough) and Michael Price (Jekyll & Hyde, Unforgotten). 

The Emmy Award winning composers return with more fresh takes on the characters and situations. Sherlock is a series that doesn’t wallow in its success as David Arnold explains, “I think we both want to move it on every time. If the show stands still then the music does too and it all grinds to a halt…so we are always trying to find something new to do with it”.

“If David Arnold and Michael Price did not exist, it would be necessary for man to invent them. Their contribution to Sherlock is immeasurable. Thrilling, cheeky, sinister, playful and simply world-class…the music’s not bad either.” Mark Gatiss (Sherlock and League Of Gentlemen creator).
