Brussels Philharmonic conducted by Dirk Brossé

World-renowned trumpeter, brass player, composer, band leader and five time Grammy Award winner, Terence Blanchard is the most prolific jazz musician to ever compose for motion pictures. As a film composer, Blanchard has more than fifty scores to his credit. He gives a voice to those who have none. There can be no better or more appealing description of the artist born in New Orleans on 13th March 1962. Since the 1980s, his unique combination of tradition and innovation has turned him into one of the giants of jazz. Every year since 1982 Film Fest Gent has honoured many of the legends of film composing and this year their spotlight falls on Terence Blanchard. Under the baton of Dirk Brossé, the Brussels Philharmonic perform some of the very best music of Blanchard’s scoring career.

“Writing films scores can be very rewarding and inspiring because of the many creative possibilities presented on any project. Being recognized, in itself, is the prize most of us yearn for, never looking beyond that because we are the background and one part of many that come together to tell a story. So for my work to be singled out in such a huge fashion is truly a magnificent honour. I’m humbled and excited all at once to be a part of this celebration and would like to thank all who made this happen.”.

Music by Tristram Cary
Special Sounds by Brian Hodgson and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop

A pioneer in the field of electronic music, Tristram Cary served as a wartime naval officer specialising in radar and electronics. He combined a career at the cutting edge of experimental music with works for cinema (The Ladykillers), television and radio. The Daleks made their debut in Doctor Who just before Christmas 1963 and Cary’s music was composed to script as a number of atmospheric pieces for specific scenes and situations. These were then played live into the studio recording, alongside effects tracks. This release of the soundtrack expands on a previous issue and includes music from all seven episodes plus unreleased material and extended cues.

Puppet on a Chain

Music Composed and Arranged by Piero Piccioni

A masterpiece of suspense and no-holds barred action, Puppet on a Chain was adapted from Alistair Maclean’s 1969 novel and released in 1971. Directed by Geoffrey Reeve and starring a granite-jawed Sven-Bertil Taube, the film’s signature boat chase (lasting eight minutes!) along the canals of Amsterdam was rumoured to be the inspiration for the similar sequence in Bond’s Live and Let Die.

The action is underpinned by Italian soundtrack maestro Piero Piccioni’s blistering Hammond-heavy score. Piccioni composed around 300 soundtracks over four decades, but was most prolific during the ‘60’s and ‘70’s, when he was sought out by directors including Francesco Rosi, Mario Monicelli, Alberto Lattuada, Luchino Visconti, Bernardo Bertolucci, Roberto Rossellini, Vittorio De Sica and Lina Wertmuller. A talented self-taught jazz musician, Piccioni’s soundtrack to Puppet on a Chain retains effortless style, portraying a decadent 1970’s Amsterdam overrun with drugs and organised crime.

Original Soundtrack by Rael Jones

Digital album release of Rael Jones’s bold and anachronistic soundtrack to Hulu & ITV’s 8-part series set in the 18th Century brothels of London. The soundtrack mixes electronica and stoner rock genres, underpinning the story and reflecting the experiences and rebellious nature of the women depicted in the programme.

Described by Hollywood Reporter as “intriguingly unique”, this period drama with a contemporary twist was entirely written, directed and produced entirely by women. The show was inspired by a book called Harris’s List of Convent Garden Ladies, a Yellow Pagesstyle directory that featured a list of prostitutes, their ages, price and sexual perversions.

Harlots is airing on ITV Encore, the network’s channel dedicated to drama and stars Samantha Morton (Fantastic Beasts, Rillington Place, The Last Panthers, Minority Report, Cider with Rosie), Lesley Manville (Mum, River, Maleficent) and Jessica Brown Findlay (Victor Frankenstein, The Outcast, Downton Abbey).

Rael Jones is a classically trained composer and Multi-Instrumentalist. His writing stems from improvisation and live performance, and he is a highly accomplished player of many instruments – Piano, Guitars, Drums, Autoharp and Musical Saw. Rael regularly tours as a guitarist with Guillemots front man Fyfe Dangerfield, as well as with his own band Thumpermonkey. Rael’s film and TV credits include My Cousin Rachel, Suite Française, Supersonic (the feature documentary about the band Oasis), NW (the TV adaptation of Zadie Smith’s NW), the coming-of-age drama Kids In Love and the feature documentary Still The Enemy Within. As orchestrator, music producer, music editor and programmer Rael has worked on film adaptation of Les Misérables, Steve Jobs, The Danish Girl, Alan Partridge, The Inbetweeners

Debbie Wiseman: Live at the Barbican

As part of Barbican’s Contemporary Music Concerts series, in January 2016 The Orchestra of the Guildhall School performed in a retrospective concert of composer Debbie Wiseman’s film, TV and concert work.

The Guildhall School alumna, Award winning composer Debbie Wiseman MBE, is one of the UK’s most in-demand composers writing for film, TV and concert hall. She is currently Classic FM’s Composer in Residence, and her soundtrack to the recent BBC TV series Wolf Hall went straight to the top of the classical music charts. With this concert Debbie Wiseman makes a nostalgic return to the School to conduct the Guildhall Chamber Orchestra in a programme of her music.

Debbie Wiseman explains – “The three years I spent studying piano and composition at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama were very special, and I was thrilled to be invited back to conduct a concert of my music with the college’s Symphony Orchestra at their brand new concert hall in the Barbican Centre, Milton Court. I was hugely impressed – but not at all surprised – at the high standard of the orchestra. These talented first and second-year musicians, despite their youth, would not sound out of place in the professional world, such is their ability. They played with commitment, focus and infectious enthusiasm, and it was an enormous pleasure working with them all. This album is dedicated to my wonderful composition teacher at the Guildhall School, Buxton Orr.”

Music of Game of Thrones

game of thrones
spotify
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.

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).
