|The BBC production from 1988 has proved a major success on DVD and sales total over 300,000. An essential element of that series was Geoffrey Burgon’s score, both stirring and melodic and with a distinctly English sound.This release features a seven part suite of music from the series. Geoffrey Burgon has an impressive reputation as one of Britain’s leading contemporary composers, as witnessed by his Requiem as well as a composer of numerous fine film and TV scores.
He won the the Ivor Novello Award for Best Theme For A Radio Or Television Production in 1979 for Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and again in 1981 for Brideshead Revisited.
This collection includes new recordings of his very best work including the timeless Brideshead Revisited, the period style of Testament Of Youth, the evocation of Victorian London in Bleak House and the austere Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.
