5.0 out of 5 stars Odd Man Out is a terrific score. 19 Oct 2007
By Jeffrey Davis VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD is a must-have for Alwyn's epic score for Odd Man Out. This is, in many ways a truly symphonic score of about 20 minutes and not, in my view, to be missed. The doomed processional which permeates the score is magnificent and highly memorable; reminiscent of Miklos Rozsa's "Road to Calvary" from "Ben Hur". The other items are enjoyable but it is "Odd Man Out" which resonates in the memory for long afterwards. I believe that this score, together with the Second Symphony and the beautiful harp concerto Lyra Angelica represent Alwyn's finest orchestral achievements. The recording and performances are first-rate. I believe that this CD should appeal to admirers of great British symphonic music, and not only to film fans.

Strongly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of British 15 Mar 2012
By Michael GILCHRIST - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
While some modern composers' serious works can be a bit daunting for a conservative listener like myself, the task of writing music for the movies seems to bring out the more accessible side of a modern composer's approach. I confess I hadn't heard of William Alwyn anthough his music has graced a host of classic British movies of the 1940s and 1950s. What is remarkable with Alwyn's film music, as well as that of the likes of Arnold, Korngold, Sainton, Walton and Bax, is how well it stands up in its own right, rather like the incidental music earlier composers wrote for Shakespeare's plays.
Chandos deserves full marks for its excellent booklet which provides generous detail about the films and the the musical sequences. The other two volumes of Alwyn's film music are equally worth having in one's collection, as is the music of the numerous other composers covered in the extensive Chandos series.
Everything about the albums is excellent: the sound quality, orchestral playing and the listenable quality of the music. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Odd Man Out soundtrack-A Terrible Beauty is Born 30 Aug 2012
By J. Feldman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a nice collection of three film soundtracks by William Alwyn but it is "Odd Man Out" that stands out as the most powerful. It's a grand score that perfectly compliments the clean b/w photography of 1946 Belfast streets and the conflict between an odd group of rebels versus the Northern Irish government. It sweeps along with the hero's miraculous run from the law, which descends to a limp and its eventual end. Even when the times get tough, there is wonder and beauty, a terrible beauty as Yeats said, and it can be heard in this very dramatic soundtrack, exquisitely performed by The London Symphony Orchestra. ....Judie Feldman
