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).

1. WAYWARD SISTERS
|Original music by TORU TAKEMITSU
Over a 60 year career director Akira Kurosawa’s films have passed into cinematic legend and he retains his status as one of the most influential and preeminent film-makers of the 20th Century.
Films such as Rashomon, Seven Samurai, Kagemusha and his last great epic, Ran are all regarded as milestones in the history of celluloid. The latter, the most expensive film made in Japan up to its release in 1985 is loosely based on Japanese legend and Shakespeare’s King Lear.
Composer Toru Takemitsu ranks as highly in the echelons
Commissioned on Kurosawa’s instructions to deliver a score inspired by Mahler with up to 40 disparate takes of music, the spectral and eerie sounds capture perfectly the imagery on screen.
Originally released as two separate suites of music this version includes those and adds a further 14 tracks of Takemitsu’s score.
01 Ran – Suite Part 1
|MUSIC BY MURRAY GOLD
Original Television Soundtrack
Nine years, 10 albums, 444 tracks, a phenomenal musical output from composer Murray Gold whose much loved scores for Doctor Who reach a new high with this three CD set covering Series 8.
A new take on the classic theme coupled with a new theme for the twelfth Doctor launch this lavish collection featuring extensive notes from the composer and music from all 12 episodes over two CDs, the third disc comprising of 14 tracks from the 2014 Christmas Day special Last Christmas.
“Ever since Doctor Who’s revival in 2005, Murray Gold’s incidental music has become as iconic as the theme tune (originally composed by Ron Grainer) he re-arranged. It takes sadness and provokes tears. It takes danger and quickens the pulse. It takes adventures through time and space with a mad man in a box and – somehow – makes it all seem even more weird and wonderful than it already is.” – Radio Times
This exciting new release has been much in demand by fans and displays the extraordinary versatility of Murray Gold’s music for one of the BBC’s biggest worldwide exports.

|MUSIC AND SONGS BY STEPHEN RENNICKS
Frank premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2014 and has gone on to critical success at subsequent festivals and on general release.
Based on the memoir by filmmaker and journalist Jon Ronson, the fictional story is loosely inspired by Frank Sidebottom, the persona of cult musician Chris Sievey as well as other outsider musicians like Captain Beefheart and Daniel Johnston.
To preserve the film’s integrity, the actors, including Michael Fassbender, Domhnall Gleeson and Maggie Gyllenhaal who perform as screen creation The Soronprfbs were recorded live.
“Captivating. It’s like an album made up of B sides and lost demo tracks that you stumble across and can’t stop replaying.”
“Never less than mesmerizing even when it’s swimming in deep waters, and never lets its big questions get in the way of subversively black comedy, compelling drama and great music.”
